I forget the actual words, and who said it, but there is a saying that goes
something like this. "Those who are willing to trade thier freedom for a
little safety deserve neither freedom OR safety."

I'm responsible for my own safety, and all the stupid lawsuits in the US
take away our freedom!

Isn't there another quote, this one in the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy"
that goes something like, "Lawyers, the first ones up against the Wall when
the Revolution comes"?
