the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest lobbyist in the world issued a bizarrely self-unaware, intentionally misleading manifesto against the American Association of Justice (AAJ), of which my esteemed boss, Justinian C. Lane is a proud member. Full disclosure, Mr. Lane asked me to look into the 52-page report created by the Chamber's "Institute for Legal Reform," but the results that I found were absolutely shocking, and the opinions I have about this absolute piece of garbage are my own. read more

As was recently highlighted by the premature cancer death of the iconic "dust lady" 42-year-old Marcy Borders last month, September 11, 2001 was only the beginning of the overall tragedy. In fact, over 33,000 respondents, residents, and volunteers have developed illnesses related to 9/11, a large portion of them respiratory-related, in New York, as well as in D.C. and Pennsylvania. read more
