We’ve received a number of interesting responses to our recent NYT op-ed on Supreme Court clerkship bonuses. We’ll probably respond to some of them in a subsequent post. For now, we’ll just share with you this one reader email:
HERE’S A TIP Re “BONUS BABIES” LOVE THOSE BONUS BABIES WHO WERE CLERKING FOR THE COURT AND HELPED DELIVER THE ELECTION TO BUBBA BUSH. MAYBE THOSE BONUS BABIES WANT TO SIGN UP FOR THE NATIONAL GUARD SO THEY CAN GET THEIR HEADS BLOWN OFF IN IRAQ. YOU DESCRIBE THE BONUS BABIES AS “GENIUSES” – LOVE IT. IS THIS THE SAME SUPREME COURT THAT DOESN’T WANT TO GIVE OVERTIME PAY TO NURSES ASSISTANTS? HEY, WHAT THE F***, WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THAT THESE ARE LAWYERS. SURE, THERE ARE PLENTY OF HONEST LAWYERS BUT NO ONE HAS EVER MET ONE. LOVE IT.
As those of you who run blogs well know, whenever you get an email in ALL CAPS, it’s gotta be good.
