This morning, CNN ran a report about a plethora of attorney suicides. They’re apparently #4 on the list of professionals who commit suicide the most. Although the report highlighted a bunch of lawyers in Kentucky, it did state that, in general, stress was the cause because their profession deals with so much conflict. The report forgot to mention lying and cheating (theirs). Maybe they commit suicide because they can’t stand looking at themselves in the mirror anymore.
I’d like to say I feel sorry for them but I don’t. I think more of them should bite the bullet. Maybe the entire profession would go away and only people/companies that represent themselves would be allowed in court. I also think judges should hop on that bandwagon, preferably starting with those Supreme Court bumblers, and of course Dagger Lady Judge, the highlight of my Big Bully Bank Case, may she R.I.P … well, maybe not so peacefully.
