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 the pastor of a church. Last year we blessed a local highway by placing holy oil on it. But this week, a group of atheists that did not like the fact that we blessed the highway went out with brooms, mops and "unholy water" and unblessed the highway. Unacceptable!! Can they do that?

Answer: The blogosphere has no specific answers for you on the propriety of unblessing a highway. You may want to check with Religion Blog Watch. My best guess is that if a highway can be legally blessed it can be legally unblessed. (FOX News, Florida church responds to 'unblessing' of highway, says atheist group is desperate for attention)

2) Question: I am a police officer. I have been asked to respond to a domestic disturbance at a residence over "how the pizza was sliced." Really? I have to do this? 

Answer: You obviously are not a married person. This pizza-slicing argument could go nuclear in a short period of time. Get moving, officer!! (Bee News Police Blotter) (via Legal Juice)

3) Question: I am doing so well as a candidate for U.S. president that I'm now entitled to Secret Service protection. Do I get to pick my own Secret Service code name? If so, are there any guidelines that I need to follow? I'm thinking of going with "Ace."

Answer: You do get to pick your own Secret Service code name but "Ace" won't work. Whatever you pick has to be clearly comprehensible over the radio, with two or three strong syllables. Try something like "Javelin" or "Renegade." (GQ, Exclusive: GQ Reveals Romney's and Santorum's Secret Service Code Names)
