Wednesday's Three Burning Legal Questions

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

1. Question: The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012, which means the world is coming to an end on that day. Do I still need to pay my traffic tickets? That seems kind of pointless under the circumstances, doesn't it?

Answer: Maybe not in Russia, but you'll need to pay them in the U.S. just in case the world does not end. (UPI, Doomsday near, man won't pay traffic fine)

2. Question: Good grief, this stupid prison dental floss breaks every time I use it. Does the government purchase some kind of terrible off-brand floss for prisons or something? 

Answer: No, it is weak by design to prevent prisoners from using dental floss as a weapon or to cut their way out of their cells. (ABA JournalAfter Inmates Sue for Dental Floss, Jailers Explain the Security Risk)

3. Question: I am having trouble getting betting lines on this weekend's pee wee football games between teams of 8-year-olds. Where did all my bookmakers go? 

Answer: They all just got arrested, sorry. (CBS News, 9 charged in Fla. youth football gambling ring)
