15yo prevented from delivering paper at 6:45am, it's illegal

http://www.dailymail.co.uk

Come rain or shine, hard-working teenager Sam Green-Jeffries ­diligently dragged himself out of bed to start his paper round at 6.45 every morning.

So it was a shock when he found that his two years’ devotion to duty meant he was breaking a bizarre law banning children from working before 7am.

Now the 15-year-old – whose dedication has won him a national award – may be forced to quit because starting later is making him late for school.

Incredibly, bureaucrats stepped in after they were tipped off by an anonymous busybody.

Malawi's Controversial Ban on Public Farting

http://www.theregister.co.uk

The law will be enforced in a similar way to that banning public urination, with local chiefs tasked with bringing noxious gasbags to justice. However, the minister has been challenged by the solicitor general, who says that the justice minister's interpretation of the offending Local Courts Bill clause is taking the piss. Said clause declares: "Any person who vitiates the atmosphere in any place so as to make it noxious to the public to the health of persons in general dwelling or carrying on business in the neighbourhood or passing along a public way shall be guilty of a misdemeanour."

'Speech or debate' clause invoked in investigations of House members

http://www.washingtonpost.com

Are you tired of politicians not being subject to the same rules as we are? The executive branch can't use wiretapping on congressman, despite the fact that they can use the patriot act on the rest of us. Now, the patriot act is bad, but shouldn't politicians be subject to the same rules as the rest of us?
