So what are you doing this weekend?

If you work in any office, you're bound to get this question on Friday.  Same if you go to court.  My answer is always the same:  Not a damn thing.

I do this.  I sit at the computer and read, looking for things to write.  I take a walk with the wife and kids.  Sometimes I walk the dog too.  But other than that, I don't go anywhere or do anything.  I probably should.

Right now I'm watching a tv show on Ranger School.  Thirty people quit their first day.  Thirty out of Three-Hundred.  Another Fourty quit after the second day.

It makes me wonder if we should have a better process for thinning out the herd of law school applicants.  Not after law school like the Bar.  During the first year.  Maybe only the first semester. Make it harder.  Make it more stressful.  Those that don't make it will save themselves a hundred grand of debt and a lifetime of misery.  Substantially less people will make it to the second year than do in most law schools.  This will cut down on the amount of lawyers running around the country and increase the overall quality of the lawyers entering the world.
