id Responds to Lawsuit

id Software's CEO, Todd Hollenshead has replied to a lawsuit filed by several of the Columbine families.
After reviewing the lawsuit, Hollenshead found that the case is almost identical to the suit filed in 1999 after the Heath High School shooting in Paducah, Ky. All claims in that case were dismissed by a federal judge last April. He added, "As with the Kentucky litigation, their claims are utterly without merit and we will vigorously defend ourselves."
When will we, as a country, learn that hiring lawyers is not a way to solve our problems--even ones as tragic as the Columbine shootings? Thanks Stomped.

<Editorial Mode> Recently, someone seriously suggested to me that I should sue the manufacturer of my snowthrower since I am now short three fingertips. The sad truth is that I would probably have a case and could win some money. But I absolutely, positively refuse to because it was my own carelessness that caused it. On top of it all, money won't make my fingertips magically reappear. If we don't get a good dose of common sense and conscience in this country, we're up a creek.</Editorial Mode>
