Thomas More, A Man For All Seasons

In the wonderful play by Robert Bolt, A Man for All Seasons, we meet Sir Thomas More, Lord Chancellor in the Court of King Henry VIII.  As an attorney and judge, More did much to strengthen the power of the jury by instituting reforms that both made the jury system more fair and strengthened the court in opposition to the growing power of the King.  In the play, when the King begins to alter the rule of law to accomodate his divorces and remarriages, More refuses to assent.  He loses his position and is eventually arrested and tortured for his...

Innocent Until Proven Guilty; Does it apply in Ohio DUI Prosecutions?

Ei incumbit probatio qui dicit, non qui negat In America you are presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.  "Presumption of innocence" serves to emphasize that the prosecution has the obligation to prove each element of the offense beyond a reasonable doubt and that the accused bears no burden of proof.  This presumption is ancient, dating back to the Old Testament.  In Genesis 18:23-32, it states, "Abraham drew near, and said, "Will you consume the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous within the city? Will you consume and not spare the place for the fifty...

The Drunken Monkey Theory

Why do we Homo sapiens love alcohol? Could it be that our love of alcohol is genetically encoded in our species due to millions of years of evolution?  Fossilized teeth show that between 45 million and 34 million years ago, human ancestors and our closest relatives -gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans - ate a diet that was rich in fruit.  Natural selection favored primates who could detect and appreciate the smell of fruit and out-compete others in its collection.  As the fruit fell from the source and lay on the ground, the yeast on the fruits skin would consume the sugar molecules...
