Letter to the Editor: Dangerous for Consumers

To the Editor:
Re “So Little Time, So Much Damage” (editorial, Nov. 4):
What the Bush administration is trying to do in its last days in office is downright frightening. Add to your litany of disgraces its rush to change at least 50 federal agency rules for the purpose of blocking safety lawsuits by injured consumers, providing immunity to negligent or irresponsible corporations.
Because this administration is engaged in so many ignoble acts in its last days, the undoing of legal liability may not receive as much attention as it should. But it is something that endangers all of us, and undoing the damage must be one of the highest priorities of the new administration.
