    Sleep easy, fair citizens.

    The Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday dumped a rule that made it a misdemeanor to sleep within 500 feet of a deposit of urine or feces.
    That provision, which faced ridicule from civil libertarians, was mistakenly included in a broader ordinance that banned public urination and defecation, City Attorney Brad Jerbic has said.

    The new ordinance, which takes out the rules against "knowingly" setting up a temporary, portable or open sleeping quarters, was passed unanimously by the City Council.
