Elsewhere in today's Hesperian our readers may find responses by Congressman Mac Thornberry , of Clarendon and the 13th Congressional District , and Mr. Curtis Clinesmith , a personal injury lawyer of Denton , also in 13th Congressional District and the current Democratic candidate seeking Mr. Thornberry's seat , to certain questions posed by the Hesperian.

...
The questions were originally submitted to Mr. Clinesmith many weeks ago.
...
Mr. Clinesmith did not respond to the questions.His office notified us he would do so in a matter of days , but the answers were not forthcoming.Recently , on his second trip to Floyd County in his capacity as a candidate , the questions were asked him again.
...
Our readers may also note that the one issue on which Mr. Clinesmith has unequivocal views is the issue of tort reform..He's against it.Many states , including Texas , have initiated tort reform in the face of vehement opposition by trial lawyers ( such as Mr. Clinesmith ) , but Mr. Clinton has prevented that action on the federal level.
...
The current administration has done everything it can to prevent changes in the status quo , and Mr. Clinesmith , in his response to the Hesperian , makes plain he would be part of any effort to prevent change at the federal level.
Trial lawyers make a bundle of money off civil suits , and they see any change as a threat to their economic well-being.A little old lady goes into McDonalds and buys a cup of coffee.She comes out , puts the coffee between her legs and drives off.The coffee spills on her legs.She finds a trial lawyer and sues McDonalds.A sympathetic jury ( McDonalds is a big outfit , and they can afford it ) gives her over $4 million , of which her lawyers get one-third.A higher court trims the award , but she still collects a bundle , as do her lawyers.All because she didn't have enough sense to put the coffee somewhere besides between her legs while driving.That's what makes a trial lawyer's day , and naturally they don't want to make the task of collecting any harder.It's a matter of bread and butter for the trial lawyers , but it makes the cost of production higher , and the cost of that product higher to everyone else.That higher cost , of course , is of no concern to the trial lawyers.They've got their money.
Another issue to which we would call attention is the response of both candidates to the question concerning the Department of Energy.
...
Mr. Clinesmith would have none of this.His evasive response is to criticize Mr. Thornberry for not being on the Agricultural Committee , as if that fact prevented Thornberry from being concerned with agricultural matters.
...
Just as we suspect Mr. Clinesmith is concerned about the fate of trial lawyers , we suspect Mr. Thornberry is concerned with the fate of what we might call the agricultural sector..
