When Negligence Results in Tragedy/ Accountability and Responsiveness

For my entire career, I have handled cases in which negligence results in tragic loss. A pharmaceutical company that markets a drug it knew could cause death (my hemophilia/AIDS cases being one example) ; a drunk driver killing or maiming an innocent driver or pedestrian; a rapist that changes the life of a victim forever as a result of a violent act. I have had all those cases and I could go on. They all also change the life of the lawyer because you share and live with the pain of the victim. They all cry out for Accountability on the part of the wrongdoer.

But there is much about it that is still 1971, the kitchen, the bathroom, the two layers of shingles, the gutters, and some of the furniture which came with the place. Well I found out something else this past weekend.

Bug Killing Cedar Oil

One of my pet loving readers recently told me about CedarCide all natural, organic pet animal products whose base is non-toxic cedar oil. She swears by their shampoo, which leaves her Great Dane’s coat shiny and smelling great.

Cedar oil, a proven insect repellant, has been around thousands of years. Cedar chests and closets have long been used for storage of winter clothes to protect them from moths and other bugs. Now, CedarCide offers products with the same bug killing ingredient.
