Activist Judges...

bought by Exxon Mobil and Philip Morris. This is from NPR:
Judicial lobbying: For years, federal judges have been wined and dined at various resorts under the pretext of "educational" sessions by upright and independent think tanks. Surprise! Corporations with issues that come before the federal bench underwrite think tanks. Phillip Morris and Exxon are two companies involved...just came out in court papers.

Phillip Morris and Exxon have also funded NPR's "educational" programing.

Yeah and Wal-Mart underwrites NPR. Nothing is sacred anymore.

Still, I'm more concerned about Exxon wining and dining judges than I am about them funding NPR.

Perhaps judges shouldn't be allowed to use gasoline powered cars, smoke cigarettes, or watch NPR. You know, just to keep things on the up and up.
