novapsyche: a woman of stature circa 1900s peering out of a ring (womanring)
Court: Marotta is a father, not merely a sperm donor -- "A Topeka man who donated sperm to a lesbian couple is the presumptive father to a baby one of the woman bore and is subject to paying child support, a Shawnee County District Court judge ruled Wednesday." This ruling really should not stand, IMO. The women were not seeking child support but rather the state.

Reno police cite 5, arrest 3 men and women during prostitution sting -- This just strikes me as incredibly stupid. This is the one state in the Union where prostitution is legal & these people can't travel outside one of the few counties where the practice is unsanctioned? Talk about shortsighted. Seriously: taxi drivers would be happy to ferry customers to any of the licensed brothels, as they get a cut of the negotiated price for any rendezvous. There is no excuse, save being extraordinarily cheap.

Your pot or your gun? Medical marijuana smokers may have to choose -- This law is unconstitutional on its face. As one of the comments stated, "known alcoholics" don't cede their 2nd Amendment rights by virtue of substance use. Those prescribed oxycodone & other legalized forms of heroin aren't punished in such a fashion. I didn't know there was a way to get me to be a 2nd Amendment advocate, but apparently someone devised a controversy that's done precisely that.
