    Doorknobs have been banned in Vancouver, Canada and many residents are up in arms over the new nanny-state rule.

    Starting next March, the city will be requiring the installation of lever handles on all new building doors instead of round doorknobs.

    The City Council passed the new code in September in an attempt to make the city more accessible to the disabled and elderly.

    I'd be thrilled to have doors that close with a click, don't stick, and that the doorknob doesn't come off in my hand now and then.

    Four boxes keep us free: the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box, and the cartridge box.

    I saw what you did there, clever man ...

    And it is definitely, a turn to the left.

    Correction, make that FURTHER to the left! Money wasting fools that they are!
