I just got out of the MPRE. It was pretty terrible. For 3 years of law school I've been taught to think in shades of grey. Now this test wants me (and my #2 pencil) to go black and white in perhaps the greyest area of them all- legal ethics! Really, if you want me to pick just one answer, don't give me two options that are equally defensible and then make me guess what you were thinking.
Fuck it, I'm goin on spring break

Too hot for TV

Since when have daytime TV judge shows turned into Jerry Springer? I am generally a huge fan of the genre- watching ghetto people argue about small debts to friends is vacuously comforting somehow. But recently I have noticed a disturbing trend- the court shows are copying talk shows. Maury Povich should sue- his bit is getting jacked. In the past couple of weeks I've seen multiple pregnancy test shows, a bootcamp show, and some hidden camera shows. Judge Hatchett is the worst- I'm watching it right now as motivation to write this post. All she does is DNA tests it seems. Let's try to keep some level of dignity in the courtroom, can't we please?

PS. Hatchett just told us a friend recently told her what "friends with benefits" was, and how she was shocked.
PPS. She just now emphasized that she doesn't support FWB situations, and she doesn't want any emails about it. This is ridiculous.
