Magician Ordered to Produce Disaster Plan for His Rabbit

Other than government employee and welfare recipient, there aren’t many occupations that can be pursued without harassment from federal officials. Not even magicians are safe. Marty Hahne, who specializes in magically producing a rabbit for the amusement of children, reports on demands made by our bureaucratic overlords:

My USDA rabbit license requirement has taken another ridiculous twist. I just received an 8 page letter from the USDA, telling me that by July 29 I need to have in place a written disaster plan, detailing all the steps I would take to help get my rabbit through a disaster, such as a tornado, fire, flood, etc. They not only want to know how I will protect my rabbit during a disaster, but also what I will do after the disaster, to make sure my rabbit gets cared for properly. I am not kidding—before the end of July I need to have this written rabbit disaster plan in place, or I am breaking the law.

Evidently this is on the level; these days, who can tell? Play it safe and donate generously to the Party of Government if you want to be left alone to earn your living.

Without federal micromanagement, magic acts could get out of hand.
