Libertarian News Mash-Up: 7/19

Just a few juicy little links for our beloved readers.

First off, it appears that the Starchild story we covered just made Wonkette.

Also, apparently Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Bill Peirce is throwing a fundraiser that’s far cheaper than his opponents’. It looks sweet-if you’re in the Ohio area, definitely check that out.

They reprimand librarians for following the law in New Jersey. Police don’t need subpoenas or the rule of law, evidently. Props to the librarian for sticking to her Constitutional guns.

    Balzac! There they go, again, those librarians. If it isn’t fighting censorship, it’s fighting for privacy and due process.

    Nick Gillespie guest blogging is good for libertarian stories.

    from link:
    New Jersey State Law requires that a subpoena is issued before library records are released to police. Nevertheless, the Mayor has harshly criticized her actions, reportedly saying that she displayed “a blatant disregard for the Police Department.” She could be formally reprimanded and subject to a 30-day unpaid suspension after a hearing next month.

    From http://www.hasbrouck-heights.nj.us/mc-min/mcindex.html :

    Mayor & Council Meetings
    Second and Fourth Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. at 320 Boulevard
    The public is welcome to attend these meetings.

    If any of you live near this place, go give the mayor a personal reprimand of your own. (This is assuming they allow public expression time like the city I live in does.)
