I don't envy judges. We elected them in the democracy we live in to make the tough decisions. It's a system that's served us long and served us well.

What kind of a democracy changes the rules in the middle of the game if they don't like who's ahead? Right wing constituents mad about a court ruling? The government steps in to change it. Baseball heros on 'roids and management decides on an unpopular solution? The government steps in to change it. Wrong guy gets most votes for president? The government steps in to change it.

How is this different from a country who's leader decides what's best for everyone instead of the people deciding through democracy? One voice speaking for everyone under the pretense of democracy-- as long as it goes along with the party line.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
