Newsday's investigation of the judicial system, "Judges act, insiders profit" [News, Oct. 5], brought to mind a quote from Ayn Rand: "When you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors -- when you see that men get richer by graft and pull than by work, and your laws don't protect you against them, but protect them against you -- when you see corruption being rewarded and honesty becoming a self-sacrifice -- you may know that your society is doomed."
