    Penalty for viewing lava from the ground: $5000 fine and 1 year in jail.
    Penalty for viewing lava from a helicopter while waking people up in their beds before 6 AM and hounding them relentlessly all day until after dark: zip
    So why is there a no-walk zone with a draconian penalty, but not a no-fly zone?
    And you call this ‘equal protection under the law’?
