Could not help be caught by the irony expressed in a lawsuit recently filed in Travis county which had this brief description:
Request for judicial review of a chapter of the Texas Occupations Code which prevents anyone convicted of a crime from receiving a locksmith's license. Plaintiff was arrested on drug charges over 7 years ago and argues that this should not prohibit him from earning a living. He points out that, in fact, locksmith skills are often taught as vocational courses in correctional facilities.
Alan Brett O'Daniel v. The Texas Commission on Private Security. GN404143 (12/20/04).
And he thought was better off because he was not learning to make license plates!
