  1. But...there are starving people...who, um, need legal the Americas of teh Untied States...or something. At least that's what law professors tell us.

  2. Why do you all keep giving coverage to this "law school" that is an embarrassment to the legal profession, legal scholarship, the City of Fort Wayne, and the State of Indiana? Let it slink quietly into the night where it belongs and feel sorry for the kids that got taken advantage of who will never practice law. Ever.

  3. Wondering if any of those ancient documents include this text for study??? ""If we pass beyond these matters to a view of American life, as expressed by its laws, its business, its customs, and its society, we find every where a clear recognition of the same truth. Among other matters, note the following: the form of oath universally prevailing, concluding with an appeal to the Almighty; the custom of opening sessions of all deliberative bodies and most conventions with prayer; the prefatory words of all wills, "In the name of God, amen;" the laws respecting the observance of the Sabbath, with the general cessation of all secular business, and the closing of courts, legislatures, and other similar public assemblies on that day; the churches and church organizations which abound in every city, town, and hamlet; the multitude of charitable organizations existing every where under Christian auspices; the gigantic missionary associations, with general support, and aiming to establish Christian missions in every quarter of the globe. These, and many other matters which might be noticed, add a volume of unofficial declarations to the mass of organic utterances that this is a Christian nation." Don't know? Google it for a surprise then.
