That statistic sounds suspect. If you figure that there's fewer than 200 accredited law schools, and the average student body is about 500, that means around 100,000 students are in law school.
There are 45,000 lawyers in Massachusetts alone.
Nevertheless, the point is well taken. There are more people going to law school than there are GOOD jobs for lawyers.
How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids
