Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

Here are today's three burning legal questions, along with the answers provided by the blogosphere.

1) Question: Gramma Anna wants to take my 5-year-old son (her grandson) out to brunch today. But the restaurant won't let them in because it refuses to serve children under the age of 6. Is this legal?

Answer: Senior citizens cannot be discriminated against but 5-year-olds can. So either Gramma Anna goes alone or they'll need to choose a different restaurant. (WTAE.com, Noise Prompts Monroeville Restaurant To Ban Young Kids) (via Consumerist)

2) Question: I had an iPad with me when I went through airport security. Now it has vanished! What the heck is going on?

Answer: Do you see any rectangular, iPad-size bulges in the pants of the TSA officer on duty? Sometimes they'll just take your iPad, stuff it down their pants and try to sell it online before their shift is over.

3) Question: My elementary school-age student is a great typist, but he can't even write his own name with a pen. What are they teaching the kids these days?

Answer: I guess you are in Indiana? Because one thing they are definitely not teaching the kids in Indiana schools any more is how to write longhand. (The Wall Street Journal, The Handwriting Is on the Wall)
