Unfortunately true... I think that the legal system in this country could do with some serious reform. If the legal system required the losing party to pay all the court costs for both sides, far fewer frivilous lawsuits would occur. If the legal system could award punitive damages and fine the attorneys on the losing side directly, rather than just their clients, in cases deemed frivilous or without merit, then you would see them all but disappear.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
