I have a pet peeve where sometimes it seems the courts try to make law which is the job of the legislatures. Some courts try to force their legislators into making specific laws like legalization of homosexual marriage in Massachussetts I think it was. It is suppose to be the job of legislators to write laws and the courts to enforce those laws. However this latest news items twists things around a bit and could be just as devestating to our American system of seperation of powers. Don't get me wrong I understand why they are doing it, they are trying to fix a problem but are they creating a new problem by doing so? Course the judges aren't elected officials so maybe their solution is the best solution? http://www.gopusa.com/news/2004/april/0416_judicial_activism_act.shtml Then again it looks like exactly what we are looking for.
