Who you calling crazy?

Today the South Carolina Supreme Court, at the request of our state bar, promulgated new rules requiring all attorneys and judges to attend one hour of legal ethics/professional responsibility education every three years “devoted exclusively to instruction in substance abuse or mental health issues and the legal profession.”  The Supreme Court’s rationale was that “members of the legal profession tend to suffer from higher rates of depression, substance abuse, and suicide than other professions.”

So every three years one hour of my life will be spent listening to someone explain how and why I should avoid “depression, substance abuse, and suicide.”  How depressing.  I think I need a drink.
