Oh, Jeez. Now you've done it. HR40 is going to show up now, feeling all entitled and jealous because you used that word on these, her boards. She is, after all, the Goddess of Whores.
It's merely to get attention. The most familiar analogy I can think of is Jack Thompson. They may be arguing the case with the worst logic ever and get beat down in court but there's always a group of idiots who will pick up on the message being sent, which was made possible by being widely reported on. It's basically a lawyer's equivalent to whoring one's self out on the strip in Vegas and scoring a rich husband or ten.
(seriously. i miss her around here. and some others that are absent. come back, rabs)
OT....George Carlin got it right. 2 professional parents scheduling appointments with the daycare (which means that someone else is raising your kids...helllllo)
This is not about the kids skill or lack of it. It's about those parents with their panties in a knot because of all that precious scheduled time was wasted on a kid that may not even have wanted to be there. Maybe they didn't suck at hockey. They just think their parents suck?
