In many states, there's a long delay required to finalize a divorce. If you don't want to wait that long, these are the states you'll want to head to. (Not to say that we want anyone to "hurry" their decision-making in such a serious matter)

Ever heard of the "baseball rule" in relation to injuries at stadiums?
It wasn’t Sluggerrr’s fault that a hot dog tossed from the mascot’s paw hit a spectator in the face during a 2009 Royals game, a Jackson County jury decided.
