Several months ago, I wrote about frivilous lawsuits. Kind of tongue in cheek stuff...but then I see garbage like this and it sends me through the roof.

When St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Josh Hancock was killed in an auto accident last month, it initially seemed like a horrible tragedy (it still is, regardless of circumstances since). Now, four weeks later, his idiot father is suing everyone.

Sue the bar for serving Hancock! Sue the tow truck that his son drove into! Sue the owner of the stalled car that spun out on the interstate, necessitating the tow truck! Sue, sue sue!

Never mind that your son a) was drunk, b) was speeding, c) was talking on a cell phone at the time, d) was in possession of marijuana there in the vehicle, e) had already been in an alcohol-related vehicular accident within the previous week, and f) wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

If dad wants to be pissed off at the world, perhaps he should look in a mirror first and ask if he could have been a better parent, if he could have taught his son better, maybe he would have been a much better decision-maker and not met this terrible fate. But instead, let's play the blame game and try to reap some financial reward. Sick. And I guess I'm not the only one that feels this way.
