Lawyer Death Match in Pakistan
What's happening in Pakistan would ordinarily be poetic justice, in a vigilante sort of way: Lawyers are killing other lawyers.
But any country in which gangs of lawyers are rioting in the streets and are ambulance-calling instead of ambulance-chasing is in trouble.
This Shakespearean drama just shows how Pakistan, the world's sixth most populous country, is breaking down. That's a scary situation in a country that's armed with nukes (thanks to North Korea) and fighter jets (thanks to the U.S.).
What if it spreads to New York City? We've got 23,000 members of the Bar right here. Think of the battles. Think of the lawsuits after the battles.
Praise Allah that our lawyers are too busy foreclosing on our mortgages and representing us against foreclosures to waste billable hours on rioting.
