How Did I Miss This Blog? 

Did you know that Scott Adams (creator of Dilbert) has a blog? Go check it out immediately! If you're looking for a good example of how funny he can be, check out this post on how we can reform the justice system:

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of celebrities who have two trials for every one alleged homicide or molestation. First there’s the criminal trial, where the jury inevitably acquits him because of the high burden of reasonable doubt. Then there’s the civil trial and its lower burden of proof where the families of the victims try to make some cash out of the deal. Two trials for the same crime. Jeeeeez.

You and I are paying for this redundancy with our tax dollars! I say we band together as concerned (and cheap) citizens and change the law so that one trial handles the whole shebang. It’s easy, really. All you’d need to change is the verdict options.

Read the whole thing to find out the very common sense choices that only Scott Adams could come up with.
