Moron Alert!

Sorry I missed this last week! It's an editorial by Greg Palast from the Baltimore Chronicle & Sentinel, where there is apparently no IQ test for contributing editorial content:
There are 200 million guns in civilian hands in the United States. That works out at 200 per lawyer. Wade through the foaming websites of the anti-Semites, weekend militiamen and Republicans, and it becomes clear that many among America's well-armed citizenry have performed the same calculation. Because if there is any hope of the ceasefire that they fear, it will come out of the barrel of a lawsuit.
Mr. Palast, a Brit, fancies himself a thoughtful commentator on current affairs, and he won a 2005 Democratic Media Award! Here's what his site says about his most recently book:
Palast is the author of the New York Times bestseller “The Best Democracy Money Can Buy,” a book Michael Moore has called “courageous reporting.”
Quel surprise!

200 guns per Lawyer (Two MILLION Lawyers)? That's a lot of lawyers! I think instead of gun control we need lawyer control. All those lawyers have to make money, and the way they do that is by litigating.

On a related note: I'm waiting for the day car companies start getting sued for DUI deaths. Or City Dept of Water for drownings and people slipping in the tub.
