I have to agree with you Tod. The implications of having politicians take a brave move to change the law says a lot about the feelings of the intelligent people in this country on this matter. Most of the court decisions in our favor have been by justices that are appointed rather than elected, so they have no incentive to pander to certain groups. The politician approach is also happening out in California too with proposals to remove the lifetime requirement to match the majority of the states’ tier systems. Ohio’s proposal is much better, but it shows that the politicians are starting to pay attention.
