Pretty much. But it is asked in the context of so many who by default think that "justice" is everyone making about the same level of income.

I also don't think it's fair that so many other blogs, not nearly as informative and well written, get so many more comments. And Drudge has an incredibly ugly site, but has so many readers. Also not fair.

I will be phoning my congressperson to ask them to correct this with legislation.
