When I read this I laughed out loud.<blockquote>(Newser) – If you find yourself annoyed while visiting Elmhurst, Illinois, think twice before rolling your eyes. Officials are debating a “disturbance and disorderly conduct” violation that includes eye-rolling, TribLocal.com reports. It all started when a resident was ejected from a public committee meeting after rolling her eyes and, as typically goes along with that, sighing.Darlene Heslop, the resident in question, has no problem with defining disorderly conduct in the municipal code because “I’d like for them to have a better understanding of the open meetings act and its meaning and to understand what disorderly conduct is,” she says (while, one assumes, rolling her eyes). She adds that perhaps city officials will start to understand “what the public is entitled to” when attending a city meeting.Read more: http://www.newser.com/story/96121/town-may-outlaw-eye-rolling.html#ixzz0uRATQube

I mean, doesn’t this tie in freedom of speech? Everyone should totally be able to roll their eyes whatever way they want while sighing. It’s nature to show our emotions, and it’s not wrong (or whatever) to cry or laugh in public, so why should it be to roll your eyes and show you’re tired or annoyed? *rolls eyes*
Your thoughts?
