Dec 18th 2008 9:47AM What a terrible idea. Is Oxford an ABA accredited law school? Do they teach American tort and criminal law? SEC and UCC regulations? An Oxford degree may sound impressive, and maybe this guy managed to pass the bar (and NY is no day at the races) but from a practical standpoint an English law degree isn't good preparation for practicing law in the United States. Plus they wear those goofy white wigs....
Jul 9th 2008 9:10AM Well said, LawyerChick!
You're right on the money regarding people's responses to learning I'm a lawyer. Add among them, "How can you defend those scum?" when they learn I have a criminal defense practice. But then they want to hear the stories.
And, really, lawyers are the worst. I met a guy , a lawyer, on an internet dating site who refused to get to know me -- becaue I'm a lawyer!
For years I said I was a dental hygienist. Now I say I'm a lion tamer. Maybe I'll switch to flight attendant....
Feb 22nd 2008 7:49PM I think there will soon be women coming out of the woodwork. I have reason to believe that McCain was romantically involved with this particular lobbyist and that there are others. The real question is whether a candidate's private life has any real relevance to his ability to serve as president.
Feb 7th 2008 11:18AM My otherwise perfect score with eBay is marred by a couple of sellers who left retaliatory negative feedback when I left negative or neutral feedback for them. In each case, I had paid immediately with PayPal and had a legitimate complaint about the seller's conduct or merchandise. When someone leaves untruthful feedback for a buyer just out of meanness, there is no way to have it removed. I don't know if the answer is to eliminate feedback for buyers entirely, but it's not fair that my feedback score is damaged by sellers who are just retaliating for my honest comments.
