Just because an idea came from a dystopian futuristic novel doesn't make it
a bad idea.  Most of the western world could use some mandatory, enforced

"The northern city of Turin passed a law in April to fine pet owners
up to 500 euros (339 pounds) if they do not walk their dogs at least
three times a day.

The new Rome by-law requires owners to regularly exercise their dogs,
and bans them from docking their pets' tails for aesthetic reasons."

Ok - doesn't anyone else find those two paragraphs extremely scary? 
Is that actually what the laws are, or just speculative legislation,
or just typical all hype no truth news reporting?

Seems a slippery slope leading up to bad things .. Whats next, the
mandatory televised 'State' wide physical exercise session every
morning, with soldiers nearby to help you if you fail to comply, as
Orwell 'predicts' in "1984"?
