    Can I ask you law professors a question?

    While you sit on your tush, in one of the most cush jobs ever, where you earn well over six figures for a few hours of work a week, and one paper a year . . . do you ever wonder why no one else in society gets such an easy life? Do you know of anyone else who does jack all day and makes six figures?

    do you ever ask who has to sacrifice to pay for this largesse?

    I’m in $150,000 of debt, and after three years of hard work all I have to look forward to is the job below. All that stuff you “taught” me – preparing motions, interrogatories and so on – is worth a whopping $14 an hour. I paid a fortune in tuition to learn a skill no one wants to pay for. So while you’re depressed about your anonymity and immeasurement, know that the people you taught are depressed because they don’t know how they’re going to eat.
