I love small towns. You usually have more freedom to be yourself and "the pursuit of happiness." But that freedom wasn't extended to a four year old earlier this month.

Moses Lake police reported in a public record stopping a four year old from "riding a motorcycle on a sidewalk" was one of their requests. I'm guessing it was one of those minibikes that are electric -- or maybe the ones with little weed-wacker motors.

I know people who sell those who have no problem with three- or four-year-old grandkids riding them. They don't go that fast.

Still, I wouldn't let MY kid ride one around. But they were on the sidewalk. I don't know, it's summer, I vote live and let live!
