A long time ago in a blogoverse far away, before I was ever a member of Freethought Blogs, I wrote up a post on a documentary called Hot Coffee, which had taught me that what appears frivolous on the surface (ooo she burned herself with coffee and now wants to sue!) is often not (life-threatening burns requiring surgery to repair).
I became upset. I’ve written angry posts before and since, but that was one of the angriest.
Susan Saladoff, who directed Hot Coffee, appeared on the Colbert Report recently, and it’s well worth taking a few moments to watch her rip apart the notion that tort reform is any good to anyone except those causing grievous harm.
