To do this work, one cannot take it personally. Success is not personal. Failure is not personal. This work is something else. It is a battle for ideas and ideals. There are winners and losers, but only in the battle which is being played out. I say I am advocating a better Washington Lawyer Discipline System. The bar association and its representatives say I am a disgruntled lawyer who should be disciplined, suspended or disbarred. They are wrong. I am not, nor do I feel, estranged from the law and the practice of law. Not in the least. And, anyway, what of the opinion of others? It is meaningless.
