Rule of Law in Romania

In a victory for Romania's decade long effort to buttress the court system and promote the rule of law, "An ardent fan of former Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci (pictured) is suing Romania president Traian Basescu for not awarding a special sports merit medal to his idol," Reuters reports.

My how far we've come.

To be sure, this kind of legal silliness is not unique to Romania. But if the trend continues, Romanians may also find themselves hopelessly trapped in a universe of "Caution, Coffee May Be Hot" and shotguns which remind you to "Point Away From Self." All the happy outcomes of an over-litigious society.
