Can one of you law students please explain the legal basis of this decision? Even if you disagree, I'd like to understand the legal point of view of the judge who made this decision.

What do you think?

For one of my classes I have to write a paper on the following topic:

"How best to conceive and measure success in life"

I have some ideas and thoughts but would love to hear the take of those who read this blog (both of you)

I look forward to hearing what you have to say and will post all or portions of my paper next week after it is turned in.

Work environment

I've been a little surprised at the lack of professionalism (or substitute in morals/standards/values etc) at work, even among degree-holding, married people with children. I can't believe some of the things that are said and talked about here. It's like I'm back in the locker room in high school. My classmates at Tech were much higher caliber people than what I've experienced so far here in the "corporate world". I guess we ride the line between blue collar and white collar here, so it makes some sense. I think when I move to my next rotation at the corporate office in September things will probably be much different. It's hard to believe anything gets accomplished here with people being so unbelievably petty, crude, immature, and disrespectful. Just to be clear, I haven't been targeted or mistreated at all. It's just what I see and hear that is disturbing. If anyone has any suggestions about the right response to this stuff let me know. Keep in mind I am the new guy and low on the totem pole, and my boss is one of the worst offenders in the office.
