More Proof It's Money That Matters
I've had occasion over the past couple of days to spend several hours in Las Vegas' snazzy new Regional Justice Center (which, by the way, has the same ridiculous "security theater" procedures as the airport).
And don't worry -- I was neither a defendant nor a plaintiff, and no one involved in my particular legal proceeding is going to jail.
In any case, as I wandered those sunlit halls of justice, I saw this little sign taped to the door of one of the courtrooms.
I see it as yet more proof that, even in our most sacred institutions, nothing is for free.
I don't mean to be flippant, and I know that fees are necessary in order for agencies to operate. But the wording of this sign leaves much to be desired. Indeed, it just sounds totally corrupt.
