Don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools

Justice at work, episode 364

This is America, where the rule of law dictates that we all play by the same rules, and we are all treated equally and fairly in the courts. Of course, the Constitution carves out exceptions for bankers, politicians, and celebrities (wait, it does, right?), but apart from that, it's a pretty great system.

Have a look at the timeline of the Lindsay Lohan crime spree and consider how you would fare if you tried that. What if you were a black dude in Oakland?

The Rule-of-Law myth fits nicely along our Liberty-And-Justice-For-All motto. It's a cute story to tell the kids.

It's a fight and a struggle, WC. It always has been and it always will be. From the day your momma brought your bawling ass into this world till the day you take your last breath, it's a fight. Nothing more and nothing less. But that's OK. To use a Georgie Patton line: Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting of battle. (even when we're fighting among ourselves)
