  A public hanging would be appropriate
Finger Points To Litigious Suspect: From The Tampa Tribune: "I f she's found guilty, Anna Ayala deserves to spend time in prison.

You remember Ayala. She's the woman who claims to have bitten down on a finger while eating a steaming bowl of chili last month at a Wendy's restaurant in San Jose, Calif.

She's the woman who says she doesn't know how the finger got there.

She's the woman with a history of suing big corporations who quickly hired a lawyer to go public with her story.

She's also the woman who dropped the lawsuit threat after suspicion fell on her. She maintains her innocence, but police think she attempted to ``give the finger'' to the restaurant chain and so have charged her with attempted grand theft. She could get seven years.

Ayala is the new poster girl for tort reform, having cost Wendy's restaurants in the San Jose area some $2.5 million in business in the last month. Some workers lost their jobs. Others have had their hours cut.

Whether guilty or not, she has hurt every legitimate claimant who comes forward with accusations against businesses."
