  1. I must admit I think Edwards is a scumbag but Barr makes a lot of sense in his article. I guess it comes down to emotion versus law and the unintended (or perhaps intended) consequences the settlement of this case may have.

  2. He is correct. Just another example of how laws are abused by government and how worthless they really are.
