William Katz: Urgent Agenda
From Britain's Telegraph: Children investigated for laughing too loudly. School pupils have been accused of laughing too loudly during playtime. Council inspectors are investigating a Roman Catholic primary school after complaints about the noise levels. Officials from a noise pollution team were brought in after neighbours claimed they were being confined inside their homes due to the "unbearable" screams of laughter from the youngsters.
When children laugh in a nanny state, it must mean there is something wrong. This is serious, a crisis far more threatening than than that middle-class Battle of Britain stuff.
ZEPHYRHILLS, Fla., July 20 (UPI) -- A Florida reverend offering drive-through weddings said no one has taken advantage of the service yet, but it has brought many curious passersby to her store. Rev. Sharon Burnett, 58, said she opened the Mother Earth Goddess metaphysical store in Zephyrhills in July and decided to convert the pickup window for the dry-cleaning business that previously occupied the building into a location for drive-through weddings, the St. Petersburg (Fla.) Times reported Monday.

BERLIN (Reuters) - German police had to rescue a 20-year-old man from a train station suitcase locker after he shut himself in for fun and began to suffocate. After a night out drinking with friends, squeezing into the locker had seemed like an amusing idea to the man, police in the southwestern city of Ludwigshafen said Friday.
Under the Obama health plan this would be treated in full as an accident caused by poor industrial design and locker-industry greed.
Watch. The federal government will move in and demand that they post the calories.
