Respect for life 

Why is it that Michael Powell wants to punish obscenity offenders on TV and radio as much as $500,000...but the Republicans want to restrict any lawsuits involving even death and permanent injury to $250,000?

Could it be...that they're more "afraid" of a little word than they respect life?

I don't want to go back to the Hammurabi Code or anything. Taking a life for a life, something barbaric like that. But the courts are there for a reason--very good reasons. "Frivolous" lawsuits may make conservatives angry when they hear about them on Limbaugh, but they're incredibly rare and have yet to actually make a real splash of an impact on our economy.

Just another thing for them to get pissed about.
