NEW ZEALAND ACCIDENTALLY ENTERS PROHIBITION: No, really. Due to a typo. Apparently Parliament was rushing through an anti-public drinking law and got an "and" and an "or" confused. The New Zealand Herald has more:
The error [in the law] is in the clause defining a public place. It says:
"A place is a designated public place if it is ...
a) a public place in the district of a territorial authority and for which the territorial authority is responsible, or
b) is identified in an order made by a territorial authority ... "
The "or" should have read "and".
