Sign of Our Times

My associate at work told me this story.  His daughter got into some legal trouble and ended up with a court-appointed lawyer.  "Dad" met the lawyer somewhere in the process and her business card led back to a Facebook page.

I questioned this....a Facebook page?

Yep, she was newly graduated and working for the county office to defend folks.  So my associate went to the Facebook page, where there were all these personal things, and pictures of this gal (in short shorts).

You would think (for $10 these days), that a newly graduated dimwit with a law degree....would have their own web page and act professional.  That wasn't the case.

I asked my associate how the legal episode turned out....probation for the daughter and some mandated anger-management class.  So he considered it a "win" in some fashion.  I asked if the anger-management business work, and he just grinned.  As in most cases that I've seen....you just can't teach anger-management.

So it's just another sign of our times....a kid messes around for five or six years, and gets their law degree....and they really don't know that much about their "business".
