Injunctions show law is for the rich

With an increasing number of celebrity philanderers applying for injunctions to protect their identities from being revealed, it won't be long before the courts have little time left to deal with matters of real importance.

In one recent case, a judge decreed the injunction was granted to protect the celebrity adulterer's children. Isn't it a pity that these high-profile celebrities can't show as much concern for their children (and their wives) before they embark on their sordid affairs?

What these injunctions prove is that as long as one has the money to buy the services of expensive lawyers, it is possible, thanks to the judicial system, to buy one's way out of trouble and avoid the consequences of one's actions.
