I am pleased to announce that Geoff Brown, my old comrade-in-arms from our days at The University of Michigan, has started his own blog. As if that wasn't good news enough, I am pleased to note that Mr Brown -- making good use of the Journalism Savvy that he gained at that august institution -- has written his first entry in response to my latest post.
Mr Brown, who is studying for the state of Michigan's bar examiniation, writes that stupid lawsuits are not necessarily the fault of the legal system itself, but rather the fault of a society unwilling to take responsibility for its own actions.
Now I can't really disagree with that, although one might note that because our society is the way it is, we might need more protections in place to protect honest citizens and companies from the predatory legal maneuverings of lazy ne'er-do-wells.
In any event, I encourage all of you to keep an eye on Mr Brown's site as it develops.Posted by Benjamin Kepple at July 11, 2003 09:43 AM | TrackBack
