Florida man loses suit over "defective" underwear
A Florida man has failed to win compensation for a “defective” pair of underwear. Albert Freed, 62, claims that over a two-week vacation in Hawaii, the fly flap of his briefs rubbed his genitals like “sandpaper belts.” Asked by a judge why he didn’t notice sooner, the 285-pound Freed said he cannot see his own genitals, and he didn’t ask his wife to look because it might “ruin her vacation.”

Ticketing non-English-speaking drivers
Dallas police have ticketed at least 38 motorists since 2007 for the nonexistent crime of being a “non-English-speaking driver.” The police chief promised to investigate, but Glenn White of the Dallas Police Association said the department was overreacting. “You go to work every day,” said White, “and if you make a mistake you got a colonoscopy from the command staff.”
