...Like the writer who created him, Boone has an unusual fascination with the legal system. The only child of two busy lawyers — one a divorce attorney, the other specializing in real estate — he has a dog named Judge and spends his free time at the local courthouse. His interest in the law is so well known that classmates seek him out for legal advice and judges make special accommodations to speak with him. Boone even scores prime seats at the local murder trial in which a husband stands accused of killing his wife.Geez. Is he serious? This will definitely push more kids into becoming lawyers. So, the flood continues.
On the train yesterday, I came across a couple of college students who were complaining about the unavailability of paid internships. So, I butted in and asked their majors and, sure enough, one was a Poli-Sci major. I begged her not to go to law school. BEGGED. She said, "But I can only qualify for entry level positions that don't pay well." I said, "The only difference between you post-college and you post-law school, is that you won't even qualify for that." I think I got my point across.
Now, I've got to keep my eyes open for tweens contemplating law school. This doesn't get any easier, does it? What next? A children's book????
So, when is the movie coming out?
