When, oh when will people EVER take responsibility for their own actions?! Once my editor told me that someone made a candle holder out of one of the patterns that was run in our magazine. The person started a fire and burned his house down. He then tried to sue the magazine. He didn’t win but it sure made a statement. Now they are afraid to publish any projects involving candles at all.

So does that mean that if I buy a cabinet from someone and slam my finger in it and break it I can sue the cabinet manufacturer? A couple weeks ago, my partner caught his finger in the car door. Maybe we should have called a lawyer?

I was reading the other thread in the forum on accidents. I think it is time that people become accountable for themselves and stop trying to make a buck on their own stupidity.

And everyone wonders why North America is in such a mess? Hummm . . . let me think . . . ???

Just my opinion, Sheila
