Pittsburgh Man Opens Ice Cream Shop/Bank and Refuses to Shut Down

http://www.post-gazette.com

Despite threats of big fines by state banking regulators, the owner of a Shadyside (Pittsburgh, Pa) ice cream shop who opened his own version of a community bank last summer isn't abandoning his mission.

"We are taking on the challenge of transforming the retail banking industry," his website states.
"PA dept of banks threatening us ... we keep growing," he tweeted in late December.

Instead of deposits he is offering "never-ending gift cards." (More hilarious examples of how this ice cream shop/bank owner is getting around regulations in the article).

Pro-Government Russian Scientists Stymied At New Rules, Centralization

http://www.nature.com

Russian scientists are falling victim to their own antiquated notions of socialized, government-run science as Moscow demands that all its science arms be further unified under new rules and authority. It's amazing to see the double-think from the scientists as they try to explain government sponsorship of science as a good thing, but in the same breath explain away further centralization and new government mandates as a bad thing. From a libertarian perspective, this reads almost like an article from The Onion.

Xmas Display Cited for Unlicensed Elec Wiring and "Too Close to Curb"

http://abclocal.go.com

Every holiday season, Mary Groth performs magic turning her home on North Broadway into a Christmas playground... 30,000 lights worth. She was issued a summons for not having a certificate for electrical wiring. Toy soldiers were deemed an obstruction for being too close to the curb. One village official said they can't loosen up on what could pose a danger to the community. The electrical work for 30,000 lights needs to be approved by a licensed electrician. If it's not, Groth will have to take down the display.

Amtrak Passengers Will Now Allow Passengers to Bring Guns on Trains

http://www.bostonherald.com

Reversing a near decade-long ban, Amtrak will allow passengers to bring guns on most trains starting next month. The change, pushed by gun-rights advocates and ordered by Congress, aligns Amtrak’s firearm policy with air travel rules that allow unloaded guns to be stored in locked baggage holds.

"It’s deemed safe and appropriate," federal Transportation Security Administration spokesman Nico Melendez said. "If people follow the rules, it’s pretty simple."
