As long as I don't have to move in with my parents, I'm happy.
That said, I agree with Dash's characterization. To use a similar example, I'm always amazed to the extent that Israelis (and Arabs who live in the West Bank/Gaza) will go to defend their leaders, even when they're obviously corrupt and moronic. When Arafat was threatened by Israel in his compound, suddenly he became a hero. Ten years ago, he was a huge crook who stole lots of $ from his own people. Similarly, Israelis loved Sharon.
* end soapbox.
But I don't think that we're defending BigLaw because it's threatened. I think we're defending it because we feel threatened that we won't pay back our loans, and essentially need it.
