Texas Rep. Lamar Smith is on CSPAN right now, talking about judicial activism and how we need to get rid of judges who consistently rule based on their own ideals instead of the law. He just made the statement that we need to educate the public about judges' bad decisions.

Has anyone contacted him regarding Mae's case yet? This might be a good thing for someone in his area of Texas to do.

Right now they're talking about Terri Schiavo--turn on your TV!

Could it be that many Americans believe judges could care less about citizens safety?
