Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner writes about a few stories this week that have caught his eye. It’s a fascinating list that shows the folly of cronyism and government intervention. A taste:

  • The company that profits from speed-camera tickets is accused of doctoring the pictures to reduce the risk that the photos will be challenged. 
  • Sacramento is fining a small business $900 for advertising on sandwich boards. 
  • New York’s liberal mayor candidate thinks Michael Bloomberg’s film subsidies are great, but that they don’t go far enough.
