It isn't supposed to be art. Art is subjective and arbitrary.

People's lives depend on the games you play with the law. More than those you get paid to defend, or cause you champion.

Have some cold weather for the next few days. I feel a warm cave calling me.

Creativity is critical to a successful trial (and even appellate) practice. And for trial practice, a bit of theater and suspense can be a great aid. As an example: An attorney was representing a plaintiff in a tort case. The plaintiff had lost a leg. For several sessions, the attorney brought a wooden box, long, rectangular and a few feet long, to the courtroom. Never mentioned it. He won a huge verdict.

Well if someone came to me and said, put on a show talking up preprinted GOP talking points for 8 million a year!

I would be like... 8 million a year you say?

The owner of Fox News, old man Murdoch eats dinner and plays golf with Ted Turner and Michael Moore for Pete's sake. His wife is anything but right wing.

Who knows but lots of money makes people do stupid stuff. Did you know Rush never voted for Reagan? Strange enough but true.

You've got a good point.

Fox also airs he Simpsons, Family Guy Nd American Dad which regularly lampoon the right wing and religion.

You sure about that Michael Moore thing?

Only a small portion of the Fox network are unhinged whackjobs. They just keep those whackjobs for the ratings, insanity and doom sell, if they just aired what's really going on, people would get bored and stop watching TV.

Good news is no news.

I've always wondered why it is that people complain about violence on tv, but that's all they want to watch.

I dumped cable when I lost my job and now I've discovered that the kind of shows I really like-science shows-are all available on the Internet.

I can still watch them on my 52" HD tv through my PS3.

I'm saving over $200 a month and getting better quality programming.

TV rots the brain. The desire to be entertained overcomes the need to think. That opens the door for others to guide your thinking.

Careful, your head may start hurting as you wean yourself from TV. In time you may even discover that those science shows are also just indoctrination packaged as entertainment.

Get some magnets, rocks, and string. Get some drawing materials and play with geometry.

Props? Anyone who loses a leg gets a huge verdict. Hopefully there is enough financial security to actually ever pay it.

Dave describes the typical topix atheist quite well. I however describe them much more truthfully. My description includes but is not limited to the following. Perfidious, dishonest , prevaricating, disgruntled, obstreperous, rote learned pedants who are likely involved in some form of deviancy.
