A lawsuit too far

I'd like to think this could only happen in Texas, where the folks are gun-lovin' and God-fearin', as long as it's their God you're talkin' about.

But given the political rhetoric zinging about these days -- have you heard some of the stuff Rick Santorum is saying? -- I have to wonder.

In any case, how ridiculous is it that an Orthodox Jewish school had to get a restraining order against the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools in order to change a tournament game time so it wouldn't conflict with observance of the Jewish Sabbath?

Most people would see this as a reasonable request, but not the TAPPS people. They denied the school's appeal to get the time changed. And so something that should never have wound up in court wound up in court.

Sheesh. What a country.
