America's longest-running personal injury litigation arena is approaching full disruption, with high-profile cases and finger-pointing on issues ranging from concealing evidence to judges in the nation's largest trial court feeling "sad" at the disrespect shown by lawyers.
In a recent editorial, the Wall Street Journal wrote a disastrous economic prescription for Illinois, one that calls for a "big bang" of the sort that has blown up Kansas' budget and turned that state into a poster child for reckless and short-sighted financial management.
While many American households now face a bright and promising economic future, it is now clear that the recession and post-recession recovery has a different look and feel depending on whether you are wealthy, middle-class, or poor.
Free speech has always been the harder road for any society. It isn't always nice and it isn't always civil, but I hope we continue to see both the value in maintaining the right to dissent, joke, and challenge as seen fit, and the real peril of trying to enforce a dreary conformity on our marketplace of ideas.
That Rupert Murdoch governs over a criminal media empire has been made clear enough in the UK courts in recent years. That the Wall Street Journal op-ed pages, the latest victim of Murdoch's lawless greed, are little more than naked propaganda is perhaps less appreciated.

Maybe embracing the future is an occupational hazard of working for a Silicon Valley high-tech enterprise. Or maybe it's inherent in our times -- times when the pace of change and stunning innovation seems to accelerate hourly.
