The past and today.... In a country run by Lawyers for Lawyers what do you expect... New Laws are being made that circumvent existing laws to fit the crimes of the politicians, the rich and famous or anybody that fits certain profiles and while we are speaking of the past..... Irony is that Charles Julius Guiteau, Assassin of US President James A. Garfield was hanged 1882. He was 40 years old.. He was also a Lawyer..
