Giving Us All Grief
Eric has a nice post up on grief mongers and their lawyers. Each little grief enacted into our common law (by judges decisions on what claims are actionable) adds friction to the system. A kind of creeping arthritis. The grief is justified and now everyone suffers. But just a little from each. So it creeps up until movement is so painful it stops.
Eric also sent me a link about a mother who is trying to stop the legal use of methadone because her son died from some that was diverted from the legal market. Let me amend that. Her action will not lead directly to that but this will. And there is a strong connection between the two.
One commenter calls for help for the grief stricken mother.
Laura says:I have some good suggestions too.
OK. I'll help: END DRUG PROHIBITIONAnd that is not all I suggested:
Now if Henry had only obeyed the law...........It is a damn shame but you just can't seem to be able to make people obey the law. Pity. Obviously I need to get more into the spirit of things so I did:
We have to get that methadone off the street. It is unfair competition for heroin.So who do I think the real culprit is? Henry's parents - the grief stricken one(s) - for getting a divorce.
