Woman shoots herself to get health care
A Michigan woman without health insurance shot herself to get medical attention. Kathy Myers, 41, says she injured her shoulder a month ago, but was told that without insurance “it would have to be life-threatening or imminent danger for them to do anything.” Myers then shot herself in the shoulder and returned to the hospital, but doctors treating the gunshot wound ignored the previous injury. “I really didn’t accomplish what I hoped it would accomplish,” Myers said.

Minnesota outlaws “Ladies’ Night”
The Minnesota Department of Human Rights has outlawed “Ladies’ Night,” ruling that offering women discounted drinks is a form of gender discrimination. The state’s tavern association said men liked Ladies’ Night, noting, “If you’ve got 200 ladies, you’ve got 400 men.”
