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.

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?"

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.

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."

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."
