electric connection and wishing I had been a “follower”

Have you been struck by lightning?  If you have, you ought to consider joining Lightning Strike and Electric Shock Survivors International, Inc.; a support group for that incredibly rare breed of person who has been unlucky enough to have been struck by lightning.

Not much of a point to this… I just had to share it… (hey, you never know who will read this and then beat the odds to become someone eligible of membership!)

Anywho – so I am in my torts class right now. Leave out any preaching about how I ought to be listening; at least I am here! We all have our very first trial brief due tomorrow afternoon (some of us earlier than others – mine is due at noon while most students is due around 4 or 5pm), and there are only a handful of us in class today. Our professor goes through the class roster each day to pick three students out who will be called on to answer questions. Name after name, there was dead silence until finally one young woman offered herself up as a sacrifice.

Perhaps the hardest thing about being in class in these last few weeks is the fact that the students who are called on to answer questions about the cases often haven’t read… which makes class move very slow and tends to cause your mind to wander. Either way, I actually did read this stuff (defamation cases) and I feel pretty comfortable with it.

Otherwise, after classes today I will be going home and working on my brief which will likely take me …. oh, until tomorrow morning to finish. I’m not making any plans to sleep. My only plan is to pick up some coffee on the way home and get that dang thing done!

And now for a quick thought:

“Cowardice asks the question – is it safe? Expediency asks the question – is it politic? Vanity asks the question – is it popular? But conscience asks the question – is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular; but one must take it because it is right.” — Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr
