October 31 roundup


  • “Oh no! I didn’t pay the tax on these bullets and they’ll arrest me for a misdemeanor! I’d better shoot this cop and make my escape!”


  • Regarding the playgroup insurance issue, there doesn’t seem to be much supporting the need for insurance. Here’s what the original poster had to say in a followup posting:

    “… I believe the insurance is there because I’m sure some regulation requires it…”

    She doesn’t even know what she is talking about. Without more information, this is simply someone spouting off. She needs to identify the specific regulation if one exists (I have my doubts).

    On the other hand, this issue could come up as a result of non-regulatory concerns. Paranoid parents, administrators, misreading an insurance document, an overzealous lawyer spouting off during cocktail hour.

    I’d like to hear more about the details of this regulation and what is officially required. Until then I am highly suspect.
