Mea culpa, I later realized I accidentally credited King Alfred the Great with the unification of England. Duhhh! It was his son, King Edward the Elder (not to be confused with King Edward the First)! Also, Edward's sister Aethelflaed, Lady of Mercia, probably did half the work at least.

This is the special supplemental episode for everyone who wants to know what a tort is and how we ended up with the civil lawsuit system we have now in America. The inspiration for this supplement is the "prima facie tort" count of comedian Aaron Glaser's lawsuit against comedian Jasmine Pierce. It's an odd duck. Come with me as we sort it out together.
