FIRST PLACE

This year's runaway First Place Stella Award winner was:  Mrs. Merv Grazinski, of Oklahoma City , Oklahoma , who purchased a new 32-foot Winnebago motor home.  On her first trip home, from an OU football game,  having driven on to the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the driver's seat to go to the back of the Winnebago to make herself a sandwich.  Not surprisingly, the motor home left the freeway, crashed and overturned.  Also not surprisingly, Mrs. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not putting in the owner's manual that she couldn't actually  leave the driver's seat while the cruise control was set.  The Oklahoma jury awarded her, are you sitting down?

$1,750,000 PLUS a new motor home.  Winnebago actually changed their manuals as a result of this suit, just in case Mrs. Grazinski has any relatives who might also buy a motor home.

Yeah, but some Americans are too litigation happy, and juries seem to think it's nice for the "victim" to have a lottery win.

I don't know if all these are true or urban myths, but even if some are true, there is something seriously wrong going on.

Mind you, there's the flip side, the most unjust and opaque "justice" systems we see in totalitarian dictatorships such as ...... um....  guess.
