Via Reason’s Dave Weigel we learn of this Madison Record story which begins thusly: “To spiff up its image, the Association of Trial Lawyers of America is considering changing its name to the American Association for Justice.”
One respnse to the potentially triumphant new name:
“If a shark called itself a kitten fish I would still not put my daughter in to play with it,” said Victor Schwartz, president of the American Tort Reform Association.
Sharks, apparently, need a new PR agency. When you’re being compared to trial lawyers, it’s fair to say the image has taken a bit of a hit. Conversely, I also believe kitten fish should stop whining and learn to snag their own multi-million dollar settlements.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
