Getting more lawyers Hold the jokes, I know some lawyers and they’re not (all) money-grubbing, back-stabbing bastards (yet).

Who can blame them?
With the average year’s tuition ot a private university going from 7K to 25K a year (tack on an apartment, food, etc.), is it any wonder that these people find the austere yet socially rewarding charms of public work less than exciting?
