THAT'LL SHOW 'EM

Lawyers in Bangladesh to protest bombings (Nicholas George, Financial Times, 11/30/2005)

Lawyers in Bangladesh have called a nationwide general strike on Thursday to protest a wave of bloody attacks against the legal profession which has been targeted by fundamentalist groups aiming to impose strict Islamic law in this south Asian nation.

Americans think we have a low regard for lawyers!

It's not clear that a general strike is the best response, though. One wonders if the French Embassy didn't provide the advice behind that move.

Any volunteers to treat American lawyers in the same fashion?

Why don't they just start shooting back?

Sorry about mispelling your name Mr. Gots. The eyes are getting old.
