Cleaning up for company

We don't mind a little scalping in Indiana; it's good, healthy capitalism, if a little blue-collar. But we gave it up for the Final Four, and now we might have to put it on hold for one more event:

The City-County Council has voted to make it illegal to scalp tickets to the Super Bowl, part of an effort by the city to bring the game to the city in 2011.

I guess this is like smoking on the porch when the nieces and nephews visit or eating at the table when the inlaws stop by. Ya'll come and stay awhile, and we'll even clean up for you, but the minute you leave, the dogs come back out of the basement, and that tacky lamp you gave us goes right back in.
