Bad economy means you too

The New York Times highlights the suffering of lawyers today. Will this be the end of billable hours? Here's one bubble that was due to burst.
With a sigh that is simultaneously proud and pained, lawyers will talk about charging clients for 3,000 or more hours in a year — a figure that means a lawyer spent about 12 hours a day of every weekday drafting motions or contracts and reviewing other lawyers’ motions and contracts.
Lawyers today. Daba girls the other day. I wonder who's next.
