This Reminds Me of a Scripture...

Here's an interesting article that I came across today:,0,1782265.story

Basically, many, many lawyers met to decide how best to sue Toyota.

As the title indicates, this reminds me of a scripture:
"Now, it was for the sole purpose to get gain, because they received thier wages according to their emply, therefore, they did stir up the people to riotingsm, and all manner of distrubances and wickedness, that they might have more employ, that they might get money according to the suits which were brought before them;...." Alma 11:20.
The "they" here is lawyers and judges.

It's unfortunate that Toyota is in this mess. It's their fault they are in the spot they're in, but the issue is getting out of hand. Perhaps if the same litigious and entitlement minded environment had existed when other historic recalls had happened (like the Pinto) it would have turned out the same.
As for me, I will still buy Toyotas. Who knows, maybe this will make them a little cheaper.
