  • Loser pays bills pending in New Hampshire and Tennessee. [Torts Prof]

  • Richard Epstein on health-care markets. [Kirkendall]
  • Unseatbelted teenager dies when falling out of moving car while vomiting; mother and Maryland AG blame Four Loko; press uses photo of boy when he was eleven. [Baltimore Sun via WTOP]

  • Don't try to open a business in San Francisco unless you're already rich. [Wright]

  • A year after Tucson, real-world effects of Koch demonization by Left. Only coverage is local. [Wichita Eagle]
