    seems to be a bad thing around what often passes for lawyerin' in our day.

    I'm increasingly astonished at how the profession of law appears to be quite content with disassociating itself from the actual effects of its actions, and that you're automatically painted as some kind of anarchist radical for pointing this out.

    Sure, plenty of lawyers do good things, and plenty of them have designed a practice around important, progressive work. But if you lawyers think---in any way shape or form---that you somehow get pass when you participate in the mechanics of big over little, rich over poor, safe over the afflicted, forget it. Not from me, and not from most people I know.

    There's as many "bad lawyer" jokes as there are for a pretty damn good reason . . .
