Tuesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: That does it. I am broke, disillusioned and have pretty much had it with this country! How do I renounce my U.S. citizenship? 

Answer: If you are broke then you're going to need to save up your money before renouncing your U.S. citizenship. That costs $450. (New York Daily NewsState Department boosts passport fees, sets cost of citizenship)

2) Question: Why am I being arrested for DUI after supposedly failing a sobriety test for not being able to walk a straight line? What part of "my boobs are too big for me to balance properly" don't you understand?!

Answer: Big breasts are no defense to DUI charges, sorry. (FOX News, Florida woman blames her 'big breasts' for failing sobriety test)

3) Question: Police at the NFL game I'm attending are about to toss me out of the stadium for using profanity in an argument with another fan. Don't I have a First Amendment right to drop the F-bomb at the game?

Answer: It looks like you may well have such a right. (Deadspin, A Man Is Suing To Assert His Legal Right To Scream "Fuck You" At Chargers Games)
