If it doesn't serve business or certain indoctrinated ideologies, speech is controlled. Contradictions are everywhere as is selective enforcement of rules/laws/etc. Some get away with things others do not. People with little to no real world experience in the context of our legal system (aside from reading some theory, taking an test and completing an almost obsolete undergraduate study) forcefully project their opinions onto others. They all think they are right/clever/unique/etc. (very similar to how religious fanatics impose thier unsubstantiated values/beliefs upon others) It's messy, clique's emerge, classism is rampant, cynicism is everywhere, cooperation is generally limited to opportunities for one to exhibit how they feel they know more than you about a particular subject and so forth.
TLS is modern America in all it's inglorious glory.


This is a very good question Op. But are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4" 245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something like that to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would say that to someones face. Just my thought.What do you think. Oh I am sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the nerve to say that to someone I know. "I'm proud to be gay. ... I love Jeff more than myself," Paul Katami, 37, of Burbank testified in a packed San Francisco courtroom. "Being gay doesn't make me any less of an American." But with voters' November 2008 passage of Proposition 8, which amended the state Constitution to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman, "being gay means I'm unequal," Katami said. "I've been in love with a woman for 10 years, and I don't have a word for it," said Kristin Perry, 45, who lives in Berkeley with her partner, Sandy Stier, 47, and their four children. "I do everything I can to be a contributing and valuable member of the state, and the state isn't letting us be happy." The two women - along with Katami and his partner of nearly nine years, 36-year-old Jeff Zarrillo - are suing to overturn Prop. 8, saying it violates the constitutional guarantee of equal protection by discriminating based on sexual orientation and gender. Their testimony took up most of the opening day of a nonjury trial before Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker. The trial is the first in any federal court over same-sex marriage, and is the first step in a case that could reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

I'll have whatever she's having.

I was waiting for the TLS proletariats to discuss.


I never said I was a proletariat..... I just care about ensuring our systems serve all people as equally as possible. (hence, law school)

No - all the mod edits (title, monkey add-on) answer the original question quite well.

I think its dumb that some posters have twisted the whole "T14 or bust" mentality into a practice of elitism and pretension. When did setting a goal become an elitist practice? How is someone giving advice to retake in order to get a better score pretentious? People visit this site for this type of advice and motivation. The fact that a mentality to do your best pervades the website shouldn't be labeled as anything but helpful or beneficial.

You might actually kill this site. I'll email Ken (via his work email) about how you're handling his online venture. I'm sure the ad dollars will continue to roll after how "silly silly" you intend to make TLS, mr. Modster. Good job.
