    Shared accounts are fun until they aren't. Suicide on CUF was painless. Time away has been great. DDD is easily the smartest guy on any message board. I couldn't see his shtick for what it was until I realized who he was. Genius. Those guys have a neat thing going over there.

    “True, we [lawyers] build no bridges. We raise no towers. We construct no engines. We paint no pictures - unless as amateurs for our own principal amusement. There is little of all that we do which the eye of man can see. But we smooth out difficulties; we relieve stress; we correct mistakes; we take up other men's burdens and by our efforts we make possible the peaceful life of men in a peaceful state.”

    It's about time. How can the U. not have one? I guess David Bitton was unofficially that guy, back in the day.
