Radio host Dennis Prager on how "The Gang of Four -- trial lawyers, handpicked jurors, fortune-seeking litigants and like-minded judges (themselves often former trial lawyers) -- have created an environment of mistrust that blankets our society." A great example of this here in the NY metropolitan area is the bane of soccer moms -- snow days. In the suburbs of NY if there is likely to be even a bit of snow the schools will shut down. The reason is school systems are deathly afraid of the liability should they FAIL to declare a snow day and children in school buses and/or automobiles get into a snow-related accident and sue for negligence. As a result for a dusting of snow, children miss a day of school.
