There is more than one way to solve a problem.

My grandmother used to say that there was more than one way to skin a cat. To animal lovers this saying may not set well; she just meant that if you cant solve a problem one way you try another way.

I was reading about the Westboro Church group....the ones who seemed to benefit from the recent Supreme Ct. free speech ruling... and was pleased to learn that there was something that just happened.

The family that makes up this church (Phelps) is made up of many lawyers. Here is a link to an article from the Topeka Capital Journal (Kansas)

Nine retired U.S. Air Force generals have filed a complaint with state regulators to seek disbarment of 10 lawyers who are members of the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka.

The military group, led by Maj. Gen. Larry Twitchell, of Ann Arbor, Mich., submitted a massive file to the Kansas Board for Discipline of Attorneys in an attempt to prove four broad violations by lawyers in the congregation that attracted attention by picketing funerals of soldiers and celebrities.

The objective of the complaint is to compel an inquiry into allegations lawyers tied to the church failed to maintain standards of professional conduct required to hold a law license in Kansas. The preferred outcome is disbarment of each individual, they said.

Lawyers have standards of conduct....even tho many people dont believe it. Hopefully the investigation has been thorough enough to show that the lawyers have acted in a manner unbecoming to members of the law profession..... one can hope{#emotions_dlg.biggrin}
