    As a young man, Congressman John Lewis, who represents most of Atlanta, literally put his life on the line in pursuit of justice. As a key civil rights leader, he endured multiple beatings. Most famously, he led the demonstration that came to be known as Bloody Sunday, suffering a fractured skull at the hands of state troopers. Public outrage about that day’s violence helped lead to the enactment of the Voting Rights Act.

    Ikea — the world’s largest furniture seller — bills itself as “The Life Improvement Store.” That moniker is impossible to embrace after the Swedish company with U.S. headquarters outside Philadelphia agreed to pay $50 million to settle three cases where boys died after being crushed by Ikea dressers that toppled on them.

    Utah has never been a drinker’s paradise. Most residents belong to the Mormon Church, which forbids the use of alcohol, and the state has notoriously strict liquor laws. Beer on tap at a bar, for example, can have no more than 4 percent alcohol by volume.
