If anything, "Gov.'s Loan for Recall Ruled Illegal" (Jan. 27) shows the futility of trying to interpret and comply with the myriad laws, rules and regulations now on the books. The Legislature passes about 1,000 new laws each year. The inevitable result of laws piled on top of laws is that process (how something is done) becomes more important than product (what is done). Forget the goal or objective. We live in a time when legal requirements and paperwork are measured in pounds. All the i's must be dotted and t's crossed to the satisfaction of some judge, lawyer or bureaucrat.
