well, we are an apathetic group, aren't we!  :-*
With only 6 brave voters out of some 143 views of the >:( Big Writing Course Poll :o, it's obvious that most viewers either don't understand how to register a vote,
don't care to vote, or are afraid of the repercussions.

Kudos to all courageous voters who have dared to drop their finger on the mouse button of dammmmmmmmnation!

Here endeth the sermon. :P

I think the two of you would make a winning ticket.

Considering the 'winning' tickets we've had over the last few elections, I'm insulted by that.

How on earth could we possibly learn anything?
I mean, I learned quite a bit about medical battery and negligence. THE LAW.
But I did not learn anything about how to write about the law....
Oh, and to my classmate who essentially told me "Well some people did well (meaning, himself) so you must not know how to write" I guess the shoe feels pretty crappy on that other foot huh?  ;)
If there is any principle of the Constitution that more imperatively calls for attachment than any other it is the principle of free thought, not free thought for those who agree with us but freedom for the thought that we hate.

Assuming that is what was really said, then that arrogant assh0le is probably an obsequious sycophant who has chanced to win favor from an overworked instructor who obviously did not read the papers carefully enough to offer constructive feedback. 

Since that assh0le implies a knowledge of how to write, why is he in the course, other than to satisfy a requirement?  Perhaps he would like to become a teaching assistant, or better yet he could wield his great authority by becoming a Hall Monitor.  I can only laugh, as such types make such a big deal out of being law students. 

This reminds me of the conceited preppy female dog who went to Vandy law school with my ex-wife unit, who pontificated, "If a person doesn't have a college degree, he should not be allowed to vote."

As Tuco said to the sadistic stockade guard in Good, Bad & Ugly, "I like big fat men like you, because when they fall, they make a big noise"... as will the arrogant writing expert.

jeese, talk about having some issues.  i see the boards haven't changed in my brief absence.  sorry dicta, but jslick has you beat on the rage issue(s).  if you have to curse someone for making a better grade, maybe law school isn't for you.  better yet, if you have trouble writing, why don't you seek some help.  dropping the 'A'-bomb and using grade school putdowns ain't gonna get ya' anywhere.  you need to bucket-up brother.
