My problem with women being underrepresented has to do with once we get out of law school. There is still a huge gap between the number of women in high positions in law and men in high positions. This may have something to do with law school in some way but I think that is has more to do with our society and still not seeing women as capable in these positions as men. Or maybe women don't have as high of expectations for themselves, I don't know. I'm not saying there aren't powerful women out there in high positions in law, I just think there needs to be alot more.

Good point. It is happening more and more now though. Less professionals are having children which sucks becuase alot of people that should be reproducing aren't.

i think i posted this on another thread.  my coworker wore a "somewhere in texas, a village is missing its idiot" t-shirt with a picture of bush on it to austin last weekend.  we warned him that his black, gay, skinny, democrat ass was going to get kicked, but before we realized he was going to austin, not another city in texas.  he said he felt right at home in the sea of kerry/edwards bumper stickers in austin :)
