Balls of the Week- Uno, Dos, Tres, Quatro....

These Georgetown law students so totally fucking rock.

During Gonzales' speech, the protesting students stayed standing throughout the speech. Five students stood up and wore black hoods reminiscent of ones used at Abu Ghraib. The hooded students held a banner reading the words of Benjamin Franklin: “Those who would sacrifice liberties in the name of security deserve neither.” Third-year law student Devon Chaffee, said later, “We believe that as law students, we must stand up for the rule of law over the creation of a culture of fear.”

My dean would have suspended us and black balled us from practicing law anywhere. Thank god there are some good replacements for us out there. I was afraid the profession was turning into a bunch of cyborg assholes more concerned with capital gains tax issues than our oath to uphold the Constitution.
