charity can't feed the poor; hairstylists can't shave; and leave your snow globes at home

Three beauties from Charles Oliver's "Brickbat" section in Reason...

1.) The Bowery Mission in New York City had to toss away a batch of fried chicken donated by a local church to help feed the homeless. City law bans all licensed food vendors, including emergency food providers, from serving food with trans fat.

2.) The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation has fined the Roosters salon chain for allowing its cosmetologists to shave their customers. Texas law allows only barbers to shave.

3.) The Transportation Security Administration will not allow airline passengers to take snow globes through security. The globes contain liquids, and the agency's rules bar passengers from bringing liquids, gels, or aerosols in containers of more than three ounces in their carry-on bags.
