Apparently, the regulatory agencies have taken it upon themselves to decide how state courts should decide torts. "But wait a minute," says even the slow-witted pre-law student, "tort actions in state courts are by their very nature outside the purview of Federal jurisdiction -- otherwise they would be Federal torts." Thankyou for that astute observation. In smaller words, this is a monumental abuse of Federal power. Someone in the administration needs to wake up and put a stop to this NOW. It's absurd that the judiciaries of the sovereign states are being castrated by grubby little bureaucrats in civil service offices, while the rest of the world watches with drool coming out of its mouth in stupefied silence. I heard an aweful lot of applause at the SRLC for the "great job" Bush has been doing. If he wants my applause, he'll have to do something, and doing about this something would be a really fine place to start.
