http://news.blogs.cnn.com

A gaunt 18-year-old Georgia man told California police his stepfather had banished him and sent him on a cross-country bus ride after the stepfather had confined him to a room for four years, authorities said. The confinement allegedly was so thorough, Mitch Comer's two younger sisters – living in the same home – hadn't seen the teen for the last two years. The teen's stepfather and mother were arrested in Dallas, Georgia, last week after a retired Los Angeles police officer found the teen wandering an L.A.

The verdicts were read in U.S. District Court in Cleveland following several days of jury deliberation and a trial that began in late August, a U.S.

Paralyzed man loses High Court right-to-die case

http://www.bbc.co.uk

"A man paralysed from the neck down has lost his High Court case to allow doctors to end his life without fear of prosecution."

Even if you disagree with the idea of being assisted in taking ones own life, we should also realize that it is his own body, and no state or entity has the right to decide what he is allowed to do with his own body.

Ending "The State", and the Optimum Path Forward...

http://lewrockwell.com

"You’re young, you’ve got your whole life ahead of you, you’re zealous for liberty, and in some capacity or another you want to spend your life in the meaningful pursuit of a better world.

Ohio Judge Having People Locked in Jail for Sagging Pants in Court

http://www.newsnet5.com

Municipal Court Judge Mark Mihok charged Durrell Brooks with contempt of court Thursday and gave him three days in jail. Mihok said he saw that Brooks’ pants were down and he could see his underwear.

"I don't have a dress code," Mihok said. "People can wear really whatever they want, but they have to cover up. I can't accept people showing their underwear in a courtroom."

Brooks was the third person in a month to be sent to jail by Mihok for sagging. He said one man's pants were so low that they weren't even touching the seat when he sat down.

Denied divorce, some same-sex couples 'wed-locked'

http://www.cnn.com

Same-sex couples can currently marry in six states and the District of Columbia, and there's no residency requirement to marry. That means that couples who live outside of those states can just pop in for a day to get married and then go home. There are also five states that allow civil unions. But if a marriage should fall apart in a state that doesn't recognize the couple's legal status in the first place, that's when things get complicated.

Penis Eating Event Under Investigation (Moral via Self Ownership?)

http://kotaku.com

This April, Japanese illustrator Mao Sugiyama offered to cook a special meal: the illustrator's surgically removed genitals. The following month, five diners paid the equivalent of US$250 to eat Sugiyama's bait and tackle, served with Italian parsley and garnished with button mushrooms.

Approximately 70 people attended the event in Tokyo's Suginami Ward on May 18 to watch five individuals chow down on Sugiyama's cooked privates.

While cannibalism is not illegal in Japan per se, health officials in Tokyo are now investigating the event...

The Man Who Quit Money

http://lifeinc.today.msnbc.msn.com

Daniel Suelo hasn't made a penny in 12 years. He hasn't spent a penny either. He is the subject of the book "The Man Who Quit Money," by Mark Sundeen. In 2000, Suelo had $30 to his name. He left the money in a phone booth and never looked back. Since then, Suelo has lived on public lands, foraging in dumpsters and canyons for food. He welcomes the generosity of others. He doesn't pay taxes. Doesn't accept any form of government welfare. And appears relatively happy. "He is not suggesting or encouraging that anyone else live like him," Sundeen told Brown.

Fears of Decentralization

http://www.libertarianstandard.com

Many libertarians, perhaps most notably Thomas E. Woods, support the decentralization of power from the federal government, including the power of nullification. Many people fear and denounce this power, often because they like the immense power of the central state and are supporters of big government. There are, however, some very real concerns by people who desire freedom as their highest political goal.
