    Yep, there are still professionals, but a good bit of todays reporting is crap.

    Ever wonder why the 'professionals' always make a point of mentioning that someone was killed with a "semi-automatic handgun" instead of just "handgun" or "pistol"?

    It's all about the wording, newspapers are famous for changing the way certain things are reported, such as fatal accidents, if there were two priuses, then the headline would be "couple killed in tragic weekend auto accident" however if a truck, SUV, or other gas thirsty vehicle were involved it would read like "SUV crash kills two over weekend". Guns, same thing.

    You betcha... hey don't forget Terri Schiavo!

    (okay, what does this have to do with the topic at hand?... did Anita Hill get an automatic ticket on Survivor or something?)
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    It's amazing how pissed off you people get when The One is challenged, criticized, or even asked a difficult question.
    Why be amazed? Its a religion for them, apparently.

    FWIW, many public interest jobs paying $40k fresh out of law school are more selective than some jobs at firms paying $160k. I have several friends with offers from firms in hand who are still interviewing at public interest places.
