Morning Mail: More Rule Changes?
I noticed that once again the powers-that-be are proposing more rule changes. This time itís the "Family Division Rules and Procedures" that the proposed changes are to. Reminds me of something James Madison, the father of the Constitution, once said:
"It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man, who knows what the law is today, can guess what it will be tomorrow. Law is defined to be a rule of action; but how can that be a rule, which is little known and less fixed?"Bob Fryer
