Quote of the week....

I'm blogging a blog of a post from another site, too many degrees of separation? From the cool guy at Alphecca.com comes the quote of the week, at the end.
Maybe that's why "Stand Your Ground" bills are becoming popular in various state houses here in the U.S. Last week I reported on one introduced in Alaska that is under consideration. Naturally there is opposition to it including (besides the usual Brady Bunch) trial lawyers. From the Fairbanks News-Miner:

The senator said the law would act as a deterrent to criminals. Melissa
Fouse, executive director of the Alaska Association of Trial Lawyers, disagreed.

"Nobody has ever proven that the death penalty is a deterrent to crime," Fouse said.

She describes the bill as a "boutique immunity bill" designed to deprive people of their right to sue over wrongdoing.

"We don't think that's right," Fouse said. "Besides, why would you shoot somebody over a car?"
Well, as one commenter to my post said, "Because it's my car!"
