The first thing we do, let's kill all the law schools

Well, naturally a lawyer wouldn't want to follow Shakespeare's famous dictum, which he puts in the mouth of Dick the Butcher: The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers. So what's happened is this: fifty-one recent graduates of law school in New York, California, Illinois, Delaware, and Florida are suing their alma maters in hopes of recovering tuition and other expenses. They can't get jobs appropriate to their skills, they claim, and the law schools misled them into thinking that they could. 

It's a pity, as Henry Kissinger said of the belligerents in the Iran-Iraq War, that they can't both lose. Blue skies! -- Dan Ford
