It's a mad,mad,mad,mad world: reason 5,432,825

From News of the Weird

Army officer Bryan Hilferty, a volunteer Little League umpire in Alexandria, Va., complained to The Washington Post in July that when he requested a copy of the League rulebook (to help him be a better umpire), he was turned down. Hilferty, who has access to classified information in his job at the Pentagon, was told that the Little League restricts its rulebooks, on a "need to know" basis, so as not to invite litigation, and that Hilferty did not qualify.

Little League. Need to know.

The inmates are running the asylum.

If keeping Little League rules a secret really is deemed necessary for national security, when can we expect that New York Times front page story exposing the details of the infield fly rule?
