      As a woman, normally I wouldn’t agree. But I agree, this is insane. I don’t think this type of behavior is acceptable, but 20 years later?? Why now?

      Joe, the mob mentality of many in our country is disgusting. It’s like a social perversion not unlike sharks in a feeding frenzy. I’m no expert in psychology for sure, but to me the dramatic increase in claims truly borders on mental illness.
