Alienation of Affection

I was walking out of a courthouse in Stillwater County yesterday when I overheard someone talking loudly on a cellphone—is that a case of being "cellurude?" to make use of a sniglet—about a "breach of contract" suit. That phrase—"breach of contract"—sounded wonderfully old-fashioned and reminded me of another phrase that I haven't heard since my early childhood village days in deepest Wisconsin.

Does anyone use the term "alienation of affection" any more.

Is Montana one of those states where one can sue for "alienation of affection?" Maybe we could find a few lawyers to work up a class action case for all of us that have been treated so badly by President Obama? With the correct motivation it seems you can get lawyers to do most anything.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
