More snow this morning. I love it!
Was reading a few news portals this morning and came across a little blurb that read: “In a settlement between Sears and customers with improperly done wheel balancing, the lawyers got $2.45 million and the customers got $2.50 per tire.”
Hmm… Seems a little lop sided to me. So I went on a quest to see what else I could dig up…
There was a $3.7 million settlement between Jim Bakers’ “Praise The Lord Ministries” and 165,000 defrauded believers. The lawyers got $2.5 million and each victim got $6.54.
One other was a settlement between customers and a cosmetic manufacturer and retailers. The lawyers got $24 million on that one and each customer got a free cosmetic.
Yeah… I’m in the wrong business.
Now this little news excursion led me to a note about two American Legion posts and two other veterans groups in Pleasanton California who sponsored a class on dowsing…
They are trying to determine if it’s possible to identify domestic terrorists by pointing sticks at suspicious people and seeing if the sticks move. One of the brains behind this idea was quoted as saying “You can’t wait for the FBI and police to come up with solutions when you have the bad guys living among us.”
