Disconnecting the plane.

Here's a toughie from Ask-a-Topologist.

Let L be a closed subspace of R^2 for which every point of L is a cut point.
Is R^2 - L disconnected. I think so.
How could it be proven (or disproved) that R^2 - I is disconnected?
Could this problem be related to the Jordan curve theorem?
