Monday'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 just minding my own business, walking down the street and doing some texting in my home town of Fort Lee, N.J. Why are the police eyeing me so much?

: Because you are committing the offense of TWW. The scourge that is "Texting While Walking" will now carry with it an $85 fine in the town of Fort Lee. (CBS News, Texting while walking banned in N.J. town)

2) Question: I'm enjoying a strawberry Fruit Roll-Up. They are made with real fruit -- Did you know that? It says so right on the label. How many grams of strawberries are in a strawberry Fruit Roll-Up, anyway? 

Answer: There are a total of 0.0 grams of strawberries in a strawberry Fruit Roll-Up. But there are some "pears from concentrate" in there, if that makes you feel any better. (Consumerist, General Mills Must Defend Claim That Fruit Roll-Ups Are "Made With Real Fruit")

3) Question: I live in Manhattan and have a child ready to start kindergarten. I just received a letter telling me the public elementary school that my child should be attending is full and we've been placed on a wait list, and that we should consider a new $16,000-a-year private school right down the block instead. Wow! The state is going to pay for my child to attend a fancy private school?

Answer: No way! That was just a friendly suggestion. (New York Post, Crowded Manhattan public kindergarten tells parents whose kids are wait-listed to try private school)
