When a city or town constructs a building it's meant to serve a purpose. That purpose usually isn't to 'look pretty' but having some curb appeal certainly doesn't hurt. If you're a fan/supporter/alum of the University of Iowa...you've been forewarned.
Last week, Iowa instituted a brand new distracted driving law. It's now considered a "primary offense" if an officer catches you using your phone behind the wheel. That law makes a lot of sense, but there are many more that are completely absurd.
