Once upon a time, it was an article of faith that the common law was not made but had always existed. Like Plato's Forms, the law was perfect and pre-existing; mortals only saw shadows on a wall.

This was subject to clarification by a higher court which presumably could see better...

Oh, neat. I envy people who're good with arts and crafts. I can't usually see what needs to be done, and even when I can, I don't always get fingers to do what I want.

Not really. ^_^ I'm more of a necklace kind of girl.
