Cat scratch fever

Jonah Goldberg looks at the six-toed cats of the Hemingway museum - and wonders why Washington cares to take sides in the local issue.
The federal government has plenty on its plate already. It should not be the cavalry of busybody neighbors or aggrieved cat ladies who can’t win an argument at the local level.
Key West is not Mogadishu. It has a functioning government, as does the state of Florida. Residents there — and across America — are capable of self-rule, which includes the right to live in ways other Americans might think is crazy or wrong.
