If It Isn't Broken Don't Fix It: Legislatures Meddling Unnecessarily with the Judicial System Rather than Cleaning Up Their Own House(s)

People are trying to "fix" the U.S. Constitution when there is nothing wrong with it and they are meddling with the Judiciary where no meddling is needed.

The actual problem is found in the political extremists who are trying to turn the USA into a completely different country than what the nation's Founders intended, departing from a government and legal system that made the country great.

Andrew Cohen has the story at The Atlantic magazine in It's Time to Stop Bullying Judges.

Rather Law than War, Rather Sports than Battle

Some readers do not understand why we post about sports on a law blog, but the fact is that our sports postings get twice as many hits as our law postings.

This is not unusual. Studies show that many men read the sports news FIRST and then turn to the other news of the day.

Mankind is a competitive being and sports are the healthiest outlets for this urge.

Indeed, if we could reduce man's battles to the sports arena and get rid of war, that would be a great leap forward.

If sports re-channel the battle instinct, then I also like to say that law is man's substitute for war. It is most certainly the much more civilized option.
