I did not mean to denigrate lawyers themselves, but really the legislators
who write the laws, many of whom ARE lawyers. It seems that they
deliberately write laws in as vague and ambiguous a manner as possible, in
order to insure they will have jobs back at their old law firms when we
finally wise up and throw them out of office.
