One of the richest Democrats in Congress is forcing his wife and children to accept government assistance to feed themselves.

Six days after Rep. Alan Grayson was named the 17th richest member of Congress by Roll Call, his wife received an EBT card to help feed herself and their four minor children. They are also enrolled in their schools' free lunch program - and we all know they're not getting very many calories from that.

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, California's coast faces a new threat. Oil companies are fracking the ocean floor just offshore - and state and federal officials seem unconcerned or out of the loop about the danger.

On dry land, fracking has been an environmental menace for years from Pennsylvania to Texas to North Dakota. But Californians only recently discovered that oil and gas companies are fracking our state as well, blasting huge volumes of water mixed with toxic chemicals into the earth to release fossil fuels. Now we've learned that oil companies are also fracking the ocean floor. This dangerous process is already happening in federal waters in the Santa Barbara Channel, where an infamous 1969 oil spill polluted our ocean and beaches with millions of gallons of oil, and federal officials recently approved a new fracking project.

As impossible as this should be in America, the land of the free and the home of religious liberty, it is happening as we speak in Idaho, one of the most conservative states in the union.

There, in Coeur D'Alene, ordained ministers Donald Knapp and his wife Evelyn are going to spend 180 days in jail and be fined $1000 a day for politely declining to perform a sodomy-based marriage ceremony.

Why has Nestlé, who owns a baby-formula producing company called Gerber, removed GMOs (genetically modified organisms) from baby foods and formulas in South Africa and not in the United States?

Perhaps because South African parents are more vocal than Americans. Or it might also be because corporations conducting business in the U.S. are protected by government agencies who don't seem to give a hoot about public health - not even of our most fragile citizens. Maybe it's time we speak out for the sake of children's health.

Residents of Mississippi with backyard bird feeders could run afoul of new state regulations that prohibit the "supplementary feeding" of wild animals.

The new rules appear to have been intended to limit the use of outdoor salt licks and other types of feeders designed for deer, but would apply to all animals, including birds.

Federal court decides 10-day waiting period laws violate Second Amendment rights. California's 10-day waiting period for gun purchases was ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge this morning in a significant victory for Second Amendment civil rights.

The laws were challenged by California gun owners Jeffrey Silvester and Brandon Combs, as well as two gun rights groups, The Calguns Foundation and Second Amendment Foundation. In the decision released this morning, Federal Eastern District of California Senior Judge Anthony W. Ishii, appointed to the bench by President Bill Clinton, found that "the 10-day waiting periods of Penal Code [sections 26815(a) and 27540(a)] violate the Second Amendment" as applied to members of certain classifications, like Silvester and Combs, and "burdens the Second Amendment rights of the Plaintiffs."

Starting in July, new mothers in Tennessee may be held criminally responsible for a baby's birth defects if the problems arise from drug use during pregnancy.

Specifically, the law says that a woman "may be prosecuted for assault for the illegal use of a narcotic drug while pregnant, if her child is born addicted to or harmed by the narcotic drug." Penalties include up to 15 years in prison. Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam (R) approved the law in April, calling it a "tool to address illicit drug use among pregnant women through treatment programs." The law does allow mothers to avoid criminal charges by signing up for and sticking with a state-run drug treatment program.

A small insurance company in California has a thing or two to learn about customer service. Adriana's Insurance Service settled a lawsuit over an employee assaulting an elderly man... and delivered his compensation in buckets full of coins.

Andres Carrasco filed a lawsuit against the company in 2012, claiming he was physically assaulted by an Adriana's Insurance Service employee. The business agreed to settle in June. When it came time for Adriana's to pay up the $21,000 they owed him, however, they didn't just cut a check. Employees ‒ eight of them ‒ arrived at Carrasco's lawyer's office in a van, and proceeded to deliver five-gallon bucket after five-gallon bucket filled with change before leaving. "There's over 16 buckets of quarters, nickels, dimes and pennies. It's going to take us at least, conservatively, one week to count that whole amount of money," attorney Antonio Gallo told KCBS. Carrasco, who is 73, just had a hernia operation, and is unable to lift any of the buckets, Gallo said to KNBC. "It's too heavy," the recipient said to KCBS.

They did everything by the book. They had their CITES permits. They even disclosed to the officials that they were carrying instruments that featured antique ivory.

But Campbell Webster and Eryk Bean, both age 17, are nonetheless each without their vintage Robertson drones after they attempted to return home to Massachusetts after a successful weekend in Canada competing at the games Maxville and Montreal. Webster's 1936 silver and ivory Robertsons are not just vintage pipes, they are an heirloom instrument, played for many years by his father Gordon Webster, who was a pipe-major with the 1st and 2nd Battalion Scots Guards and served for many years as the official piper to Queen Elizabeth II.
