Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1) Question: Why is there a police officer at my door asking to speak to my five-year-old daughter?!

Answer: Probably because she has overdue library books. (Consumerist, Library Sends Police After 5-Year-Old Girl To Tell Her To Pay Up Or Return Two Overdue Books)

2) Question: I am 99 years old. My wife and I have been married for 77 years -- just five years shy of the American record of 82 years. But I just learned that she had an affair with another man in 1934 -- is that grounds for a divorce? 

Answer: Indeed it is. (Mail Online, 'He just saw red': 99-year-old man divorces wife after discovering she had an affair SIXTY years ago)

3) Question: Why can't I get any information on my religion of Wicca on any of the computers at the Salem, Mo., public library?

Answer: Sorry, but information about the Wicca religion is filtered out at the Salem library because it is deemed to be "occult" and "criminal skills." (Law and Disorder, Library computers can block porn—but Wicca? ACLU says no)
