A reporter on ABC TV's "Good Morning America" today, noting that the
city council had delayed action on the bill described below after
constitutional questions had been raised, asked whether there was a
"freedom of stench".

"Honolulu City Council is considering a bill that would impose up to
$500 fine and/or up to 6 months in jail for transit passengers
convicted of being too smelly."
[KGMB.com, September 1.]

Merely 4 Google hits on "freedom of stench" this morning, despite the
fact that this news is an immense two days old, none related to the
Honolulu bill.
