    Re: Mauriice Murphy , 109,500 miles Bike to Work

    Posted by Sharon on 2/25/10

    I see people biking to work all the time here in Ca. What I don't get
    about you, John, is that you present an analogy that Mr. Murphy was a
    productive human being because he did not file a lawsuit claiming he
    was harmed by mold.

    Yet, you yourself were a plaintiff in a mold lawsuit.

    So how does that equate in your mind that people who file lawsuits for
    injuries to health and/or property from mold are useless slackers who
    are burdens on society?
