Doctor Is Busted For Walking?!!?

http://articles.courant.com

On March 31 he was headed home, on foot as usual, on the far left of South Road. A car came in his direction, which he judged was going too fast and not as far into the middle of the road as he would have liked. As the car approached, Dr. Walsh waved his arms "as I usually do just to make sure the driver can detect motion and see me more clearly." He said the driver saw him but still came within 18 inches of him.

http://www.latimes.com

Happy Meal toys and other promotions that come with high-calorie children's meals will soon be banned in parts of Santa Clara County unless the restaurants meet nutritional guidelines approved Tuesday by the county Board of Supervisors.

Dissatisfaction with Federalism Grows

http://www.abc.net.au

-Dissatisfaction with Federalism Grows-

aka "Obey all directives"

When a State disagrees with a Federal program, what's the solution? Apparently in Australia, abolition of the State is the logical next step.

According to "polls", 4 out of 10 Australians would have no problem living under one unchecked Federal Government.

It's a worrying trend and something we should all shudder to consider. When the institutions of dissent are removed, what will become of our precious liberties?

With parallels to the US State vs. Federal friction, this is could set an alarming precedent.

Let the mission creep begin. Walking and talking is dangerous

http://www.boston.com

Distracted driving has gained much attention lately because of the inflated crash risk posed by drivers using cellphones to talk and text.

But there is another growing problem caused by lower-stakes multitasking - distracted walking - which combines a pedestrian, an electronic device, and an unseen crack in the sidewalk, the pole of a stop sign, a toy left on the living room floor, or a parked (or sometimes moving) car.
