Why lawyers are special

Dave Winer has a great post on why lawyers are special. I had a bit of a laugh when I saw this. This paragraph pretty much sums it up:

But — people are scared of “outing” lawyers who misbehave because when a lawyer gets mad, he or she can destroy you. I suppose a doctor can too, but that’s a little too scary to contemplate — let’s hope that doesn’t actually happen. But lawyers try to destroy people as a matter of everyday business. Non-lawyers just accept it with a shoulder-shrug.
