california legal ethics
i love that there's a book out there being diligently studied titled "california legal ethics." two points clearly not made in the book are taking up only one seat on the train and abstaining from the use of optical illusions.
after all, it's a bit unfair to be asking probing, complex questions of a witness when they're wondering if the diagonal stripes against the vertical stripes really are in the shape of a tie (see shirt and tie combo).
of course, the bigger issue with such a book title is that somehow ethics regarding issues of law are different from just normal ethics; and, by extension, that these "new ethics" are different in california from oregon, arizona or anywhere else in the world. legal scholars will have their justifications, i'm sure, but i'll be damned if it make any sense to the rest of us.
