Yeah, but he's not exactly wrong in this case. He lacks perspective on the industry as a whole, but there is no question that the investment has gotten substantially worse since his day.
So you just want to sit around and recite bland, oversimplified aphorisms?
Listen, we get the legal market has changed over the past 55 years. Nobody is disputing that. The post by someone who heard from someone that the legal market is bad is only interesting and relevant if it offers new data and information (which it doesn't) or presents a claim made by someone speaking from a significant enough place of authority on the subject matter to have some valuable insight on the information we already have (which one solo 55 years out of the loop isn't). So, this thread is an extremely thin pretense to once again trot out the tired vague discussion of "the legal market isn't what it used to be." And I don't have the patience for that, although I'm sure everyone would welcome the opportunity to once again make vague and boring comments like "the investment has gotten substantially worse since his day."
