Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: I'm furious at my estranged spouse and, frankly, I may just go burn his trailer home to the ground. Any guidelines I should follow here?

Answer: First, that is a really terrible idea. But if you cannot be dissuaded from this plan, at least make sure that you are not inside the trailer when you light the match. (The Birmingham News, Woman burned while torching estranged husband's property)

2) Question: I just learned that I have breast cancer. Medicaid provides coverage to breast cancer patients, right?

Answer: Yes. Unless you are a man. (Consumerist, Man With Breast Cancer Can't Get Medicaid Coverage Because He's A Man)

3) Question: We are trying to enjoy our vacation here in Kure Beach, N.C., but the neighbors insist on playing their piccolos at ear-splitting levels. What can we do?

Answer: No worries, your bliss is specifically protected from out-of-control piccolo playing by Section Sec. 11-31 of the Kure Beach nuisance laws. (Legal Juice, Turn Down Your Piccolo, Or Else)
