No Haircuts, But What About Barbershop Quartets

Looks like Houma, Louisiana is leading the way on public safety initiatives in the US:

Clyde Scott was in his barbershop cutting hair when a police officer walked in and gave him a ticket… for cutting hair. The city of Houma, Louisiana, it seems, has a decades-old law banning cutting hair on Mondays. It also bans cutting hair on Sundays as well as several holidays and the days after a few of those holidays. Scott says he didn't know about that law.

No word yet on whether barbershops can remain open on Mondays for barbershop quartet practice.
