Stickers for teen drivers silly

The legislature and governor of New Jersey have lost their collective common sense, which is to say they are politicians. The former passed and the latter signed a law set to take effect in 2010 that will require drivers age 21 and younger to put stickers on the bumpers of their cars letting fellow drivers know they are road hazards. The exact wording of said sticker has not been determined, so allow me to be the first to suggest "Yute."

PSC reconsiders controversial vote

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia's Public Service Commission backed down from its decision to elect its own chairman and double the length of the post's term Tuesday after the state's top attorney said it had no authority to do so.

But a majority of the five-member body made it clear they would keep the debate alive by voting to table the issue rather than reverse it. The defiant trio said they are not bound by the attorney general's opinion and would again urge lawmakers to change the rules.
