The Tennessean has a nice article about people trying to preserve a fort built in 1862 and isn't wonderful to save the past. At the same time, we're looking at adding taxes and dropping 430,000 people from public health insurance.Sorry, but I care a lot more about health care for the needy than saving a pile of rocks.Yes, I understand that the money to save the fort isn't government money, but it still bothers me that people are going without healthcare while there seems to be money floating around for saving an old fort.
To be any more bored with my job, I would have to be dead or at least comatose.Tomorrow I'm taking the day off to attend a bar association CLE seminar on the new Tennessee child support guidelines. It's free for student members of TBA and I see a chance to meet and greet the gods (lawyers). It might be a waste of a day off, but these days work seems less relevant everyday.My team lead brought up a problem the users were having with a new release. I gave her my opinion of the situation. She said we had to research it first. We 'researched' it for about 20 minutes and then she gave me her opinion. She basically repeated what I told her in first place. When I compare work to the law, it seems down right sureal. The hardest part of law school is going to work every day.

What are the changes supposed to do.....It takes in to account the custodial parent's income, so I suppose you could look at it that way. One of the lawyers said that this change was pushed through by non-custodial parents who felt they were being cheated.The counter-argument is that this will be perceived as fairer and will result in greater compliance.I got a nice 'book' with the new guidelines and associated materials. Met some lawyers. Got a free box lunch. All in all it was a good use of my day.

There are more segregated schools than ever. Hell, in the south the churches are mostly segregated. Neighborhoods are still largely segregated.The 60s gave us the formality of integration, but the reality is still a long way off.

Warrantless arrests and searches. I was relieved when prof (criminal appeals judge) said that the law is confused, because I was plenty confused.
