Let me briefly draw your attention to a very revealing and interesting article in today’s on-line edition of the New York Times. The title of this commentary is the headline of the article, which I hope you will read at:
The excessive and unwarranted billing of fees by the legal establishment is at the root of numerous problems confronting our once great and admired country. Your Commander has a growing concern that nothing of substance can be expected to be done, because our government is dominated by members of the legal profession. A perfect example is the fact that tort reform was purposely left out of the Health Reform legislation when its inclusion would have reduced costs significantly.
This article carefully presents the case against the abuses perpetrated by lawyers that clearly labor against the best interests of all citizens of the world. This is another clear example of why the public is MAD AS HELL, but I assure you that someday something will be done about it.
