Yesterday brought a link from a Florida Keys lawyer, who from time to time over the years encourages me to keep rocking the boat.
The Post required me to disable my ad blocker to see the article, so I found a New York Times link that did not pout over my ad blocker. The Times article did not format well into a post at this website, so I leave for you to open the link below and have a bit of fun reading even more howler FUBAR-ing from the great red state of Alabama, where I was born and raised, attended the University of Alabama School of Law, and practiced law for a while:
Tensions had publicly bubbled up in recent weeks, with Hugh F. Culverhouse Jr. reportedly dictating how he wanted his $21.5 million donation spent ...
After reading the article, I replied to my lawyer friend:
I had not yet heard of this fantastic horror movie. What the fuck were the people running the law school thinking to begin with, changing its name to the donor's name? The karma was swift and harsh. Regardless of the disagreements between the donor and the law school, I think the law school made an even bigger mistake, if it did not publicly denounce the Alabama legislature and governor legalizing rape and incest, so to speak. Alabama has made itself a pariah. If I were looking to go to law school, and then practice law elsewhere, I would not attend the University of Alabama School of Law and then wear that red badge of hell the rest of my law career.
I then went online and found a cheeky article in the Birmingham News (AL.com) by a University of Alabama School of Law student, who felt called to defend her school's honor. Her article formatted ok at this blog. Cheeky is good, but I felt she was too close to the situation to be entirely objective, and I made the only comment under her article up to that point in time.
What Culverhouse and the media got wrong about UA law
On the national blue politics FUBAR-ing front, this showed up in my Facebook time line yesterday:
