The Occupational Safety and Health Administration — another legacy of President Nixon — is going after a two-employee, home-based company in St. Louis, Heff's Tuckpointing. The company consists of the owner and his nephew, but the federal government wants to protect them from themselves, levying $3,600 in fines on the company. The St. Louis Dispatch has the details in a column that runs under the excellent headline "Small business owner stands up to government." Link via Rush Limbaugh's email newsletter.
