She calls it a rant

I call it an excellent post.

Am not! Am not! You take that back!!

Seriously, i was never a fan of frivolous or greedy lawsuits and the lawyers that fatten on them, nor have i ever favored the mentality that someone is at fault and owes money for everything that happens. I'm more inclined to blame a jury system that favors selection of poorly educated, logic-impaired and emotion-based, malleable jurors who award unwarranted settlements, but i have no idea how to improve things without stepping on defendant/plaintiff rights. If we must err, we have to err on that side, but justice needs to be served better.

I was on a jury once (though not for a civil suit). I'll rant about it someday.
