You know, LIFE is 'unfair'

A federal judge has ruled that the US Government has discriminated against the blind because US paper currency all feels the same.

Usually, the word "discriminate" implies intent. Somehow I don't think the US Treasury went out of its way to design currency with the intention of pranking the blind.

However, in our current culture of Accomodating the Most Pitiful (or the Most Whiney) regardless of reason or expense, Judge James Robertson has given the Treasury Department ten days to start working on changing all US currency.

I await the Federal Judge to order the US Transportation Department to start working on a way to allow all blind people to "meaningfully access" the nations highways -- maybe ordering car manufacturers to develop cars that the blind can drive.

Hell, what's a government for if not to make life "fair"?

For some reason trackbacks never work for me with your blog....


[The trackbacks stopped working even for me a couple of days ago. I haven't had the time to read through the code, but it looks like it's time to update my site ... Dar]

It's time to impeach at least one judge.
