Re: law stuff (was Jim Oury)

I agree that it's nothing to get worked up over (and I'm not.... I'm sure
Howard is a good guy).  Please just understand that sometimes it's hard to
"lighten up" when literally day-in and day-out people say the most
gawd-awful insulting and rude things to you, personally. It is often one of
the first things out of someone's mouth when the first meet you and find out
you are a lawyer (or in my case a law student). Most of the time, I just let
things roll by as people generally don't even realize they're being rude or
insulting and don't intend to be; it's kind of a reflex to say something bad
about lawyers when the subject comes up.  But, every now and then it seems
worth it to say something (kind of a "ahem", excuse me, throat-clearing sort
of thing), so I did.
