CAFE Standards To Make Cars Less Safe

http://lewrockwell.com

Because your next new car probably won’t come with even a mini-spare – let alone an actual full-size spare tire. The latter has been MIA from all-but-large-luxury cars (and trucks) for years, partially because the available trunk real estate of the typical new car is much less than it was in the past.

La. Lawmaker Seeks to Ban Wearing Pajamas in Public

http://www.usatoday.com

Caddo Parish District 3 Commissioner Michael Williams said after seeing a group of young men at a local Walmart wearing pajama pants that revealed one young man's private parts, he decided to push for an ordinance that would prohibit wearing pajama pants in public. "Pajamas are designed to be worn in the bedroom at night," Williams said. "If you can't (wear pajamas) at the Boardwalk or courthouse, why are you going to do it in a restaurant or in public? Today it's pajamas," Williams said. "Tomorrow it's underwear. Where does it stop?"

Three Calif parents ARE arrested for truant children

http://www.sbsun.com

Three parents were arrested last week because their children had been truant too many times, officials said Wednesday. The consequences for parents arrested for their child's truancy include up to one year in county jail and/or a $2,000 fine for each child not in compliance. "Sometimes we have to reinforce the idea that it is a crime to not send your child to school," said Chief Deputy DA Karen Bell. "We don't want to take that route, but some parents force our hand and give us no other choice but to file criminal charges."

New Zealand Rejects Names it Doesn't Like for Newborns

http://www.news.com.au

The New Zealand department which registers births, recently released a list of disallowed names from the past decade. While no names are banned outright, they can't be more than 100 characters long, use an unearned title or be offensive to the general public. They also have to be actual words, not numbers or symbols. Some of the rejected names: Justice, Princess, King, Bishop, Lucifer, Messiah, Christ, Mafia No Fear, Anal, V8, and the symbol *. Somehow, Violence, Chardonnay and Number 16 Bus Shelter did get by the registry.

Harry's Freedom Foxhole - The TSA Took My Baby Away

http://www.vice.com

"We have decided, as a society, that if you travel by plane it is totally all right to treat you like you are a dangerous criminal. On your way to the terminal, you remove your shoes and belt, you empty your pockets, you make sure you have no potentially dangerous(?) liquids in your bag, you stand in front of a full-body scanner and put your hands above your head for seven seconds. Sometimes you are even frisked by a dead-eyed security guard while you gaze into the middle distance."

http://reason.com

Last week the parents of a Wisconsin boy sued Grant County District Attorney Lisa Riniker for charging their son with first-degree sexual assault, a Class B felony, after he played "butt doctor" with a 5-year-old girl. He was 6 at the time. When the boy's lawyer tried to have the charge dismissed, Riniker replied: "The legislature could have put an age restriction in the statute if it wanted to. The legislature did no such thing."

Federal agents swooped in on Gibson Guitar Wednesday, raiding factories and offices in Memphis and Nashville, seizing several pallets of wood, electronic files and guitars...The question in the first raid seemed to be whether Gibson had been buying illegally harvested hardwoods from protected forests, such as the Madagascar ebony that makes for such lovely fretboards...The tangled intersection of international laws is enforced through a thicket of paperwork. Recent revisions to 1900's Lacey Act require that anyone crossing the U.S.

In the last decade, New York drastically reduced its prison population and at the same time experienced a huge drop in crime. Indiana, on the other hand, drastically increased its prison population — and consequently the burden to taxpayers — while seeing a much smaller drop in crime than the national average.
