Damn, people

The lawyers at my firm this summer were constantly pumping us for gossip about summer associate scandals. Unfortunately, the 2004 summer classes appear to have been so well behaved that the profession has to scrape this low for things to gasp and whisper about: a microcosmic version of the Cheney Senate fracas. But is anyone really shocked that people in high stress positions can occasionally lose their temper and let lose a flurry of swear words? Would it be better for us to sit with throbbing veins and grind our teeth? Scream like animals? In an ideal world, everyone would be civil and composed 24/7, but that's not the way things are. Swear on, guys. I might have watched the convention if there had been a realistic chance of seeing Bush cut loose.
