Dear John, EBB Moderator and Interested Others, 
You don't have to be a psychoanalyst to realize that the following
paragraph still constitutes unnecessary "lawyer bashing" and has no place
in a forum to promote life extension.  This is a biology oriented EBB to
promote the concerns of all of us for long, healthy and functional lives. 
All of you out there constitute the jury of public opinion in this debate. 
What is your verdict?  Do people that write like this below deserve to have
material like this published? 
"Because we the people pay lawyers more then biochemists, we are primarily
to blame for the fact that there are more lawyers denying us freedom then
there are biochemists curing our diseases". 
Hate and  prejudice against any group of people (lawyers, too) is also a
disease, a disease of the spirit. 
I say, lets hug John instead of throwing him out. John, you 're OK.  You
just need more balance and less scape-goating--And start talking about how
we are going to   promote life extension in a thousand different positive
ways  by setting a good example,  really educating the public and our
representatives in Congress. 
"He drew a circle that shut me out, 
heretic, rebel, a thing to flout, 
But love and I had the wit to win,  
We drew a circle that took him in.
