This book does a good job of bring together a lot of information but today with the internet all of this information can be easily found. It offers such great ideas as "Why don't you work for an NFL team? Here is the phone number to the Arizona Cardinals...." Hey why didn't I think of that?

Would you, as Walton says DOJs do, feel a quiver run up your spine when you announce "I represent the United States" in court if you were defending the U.S. for example, in the current case of a Syrian born Canadian citizen whom John Ashcroft knowingly deported to Syria, where he was tortured for over 10 months before the Candadians could get him out?" NOT...The public firm representing that client, the Center for Constitutional Rights, by the way, is breaking ground in a big way since 9/11 by taking the lead in unpopular cases defending Muslims and Arabs. However, that organization is...
