Congratulations to the Institute for Justice on a victory for business rights in Utah. A federal court has ruled that the state's requirement that hair braiders get cosmetology licenses -- which require 2,000 hours of training that might not even cover hair braiding! -- is unconstitutional .

No one should need the government's permission to go into business providing a service to willing customers, but eliminating an absurd requirement like this one is a step in the right direction.
