There is an old joke that goes something like this: What do you call a hundred lawyers at the bottom of the ocean? A good start. The US has a Senate composed of 100 Senators, most of whom are lawyers. Is it just a coincidence that it is the same number of lawyers in the joke or is it significant? Personally, I believe that laws are too important to the rest of us to leave their formulation in the hands of the legal profession.
