I'm using the 6000 right now outside, and I can see the screen just fine, even with the sun. Inside in a classroom setting, it's perfect. I haven't had any problems with it yet.
Messages - I hear America singing
Are you sure you're not confusing One L with Law SchooL Confidential? I read both, and I don't remember anything about highlighters in One L. LSC goes on and on about their intricate multi-chromatic highlighting scheme.
It's in there- he mentions toward the beginning that he ran to the office supply store and picked up a bunch of them. One of his friends started calling him the "Rainbow Kid".
I'm trying to stick to lighter summer fare this summer...I've got enough stress as it is.
Have you read any Connelly or Hiassen? I'm not gay, but if I were I would definitely hit on Harry Bosch. Hiassen is great because he reminds me of Wodehouse- both of them occasionally make you laugh out loud while you're reading.

It's been great discussing this, it really has, but I'm bored now and I think I'll go for a bike ride. If you want, you can pretend I left because I feared your rapier wit and worried that you would shove an intellectual proof down my throat.

And that apples and oranges example was bunk. I didn't address it because it didn't pertain to our discussion. You implied by saying that only 1 out of 7000 people get to go to law school, that the other 6,999 were missing out somehow. A closer apples oranges argument would be, "Out of a truckload of oranges, I got the only apple!" Then one could reply, "I knew it! You hate oranges!"
I hope you don't think either example contains a semblance of logic. The individual in the latter sounds like an insecure orange grower on the verge of bankruptcy. Furthermore, my statement that only 1 out of 7000 people getting into law school implies that... 1 out of 7000 people go to law school. Anything else, and you're reaching.

I pity the person who reads my statement and thinks, "Wow, that'll make a great target!"
I hope you're a happier person than I think you are.
As far as agreement goes, I think you'd rather root out an argument than accept any condition resembling anything close to mutuality.
I think I would rather you not agree with my statement, considering the kind of picture your words have painted you out to be.

I think you took my statement and added your own interpretation. I never said anything negative about those who don't go to law school; conversely, I said that we have something to be proud of.
It's interesting, when I use emotional statements, you try psuedo-logic; yet when I use logic to disprove your point, you turn "wishy-washy". Nice tango we're dancing there.
I'm convinced I'm not the only future lawyer who still holds out some hope. There's got to be at least three of us.

Why has it become the overarching belief in our society that intellectual behavior be coupled with outright cynicism? It is almost as if we are not content to be unhappily disillusioned on our own, but instead we must attempt to destroy the patina of hope that resides in the precious few.
I think you, and the others, created that tone.
Secondly, there are millions upon millions of Americans who never get the chance to apply due to circumstances they cannot control. By just looking at the application numbers, you are denying the fact that the applicant pool was dwindled long before we started thinking about the LSAT.
