Time to Thin the Herd

January 21, 2007

In 2006, Mrs. Merv Grazinski of Oklahoma City purchased a new 32 ft. Winnebago motor home. On her 1st trip home from a football game, while driving on the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the drivers seat to go to the back and make a sandwich.
The RV left the road, crashed and overturned. She sued Winnebago for not advising her in the owner’s manual that she shouldn’t do this. The jury awarded her $1,750,00 plus a new motor home. Winnebago has since changed their owner’s manual to include this warning in case there are any more complete morons around.
OK…now you know what I mean by thinning the herd, plus Winnebago should be able to sue the morons on the jury for malpractice, along with the Judge for accepting the ruling and allowing it to stand.
This has got to stop. Maybe the jury system has outlived it purpose. Perhaps, it should be replaced with professional jurors, where it is a job with a weekly salary.
Maybe people like Mrs Grazinski should not be allowed out in public alone. They are a hazard to the general population.
