Teen sues DMV after being told to remove makeup

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — A 16-year-old in South Carolina sued the state's Department of Motor Vehicles on Tuesday because the agency won't allow him to take a driver's license photo wearing makeup.
Chase Culpepper regularly wears makeup and either androgynous or women's clothing. During a news conference Tuesday at the Statehouse in Columbia, he told reporters that being ordered by officials to remove what they called a disguise was degrading.
"I left the DMV feeling humiliated," Culpepper said. "I want to be myself and have a driver's license photo that reflects that."
After passing his driving test in March, Culpepper went to get his license at a DMV office in Anderson, about 100 miles northwest of Columbia. That day, as is the case every day, Culpepper wore makeup and women's clothing.

— The dreaded Ebola virus came to the children’s hospital in the form of a 4-year-old boy.
His diagnosis became clear three days after he was admitted. The Ola During hospital — the nation’s only pediatric center — was forced to close its steel gates. Fear swelled. The boy died. The 30 doctors and nurses who had contact with him were placed in quarantine, forced to nervously wait out the 21 days it can take for the virus to emerge. And remaining staff so far have refused to return to work. They, along with millions of others, are facing the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Already, the hardest-hit West African nations of Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have reported more than 3,000 cases, including the infections of 240 health-care workers.

US senators have advised sending defensive weapons to Ukraine so the latter can fight off pro-Russian rebels as President Vladimir Putin dangled the threat of nuclear war.
Robert Menendez, head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator John McCain and Representative Mike Rogers, chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, all believe the U.S. must help Ukraine in its sovereignty war against Russia.
Menendez told CNN Ukrainians must be provided with defensive weapons that will make a dent on Russia's ambition to seize the country.
More importantly, give Ukraine the weapons they need so they can fight, McCain told CBS's Face the Nation.
