It is not always terribly sexy, but a lawyer with decent knowledge of constitutional law and serious persistence may just save a whole lot of our lives soon. I learned the value of a lawyer when I was in North Carolina and thrown in jail for attempting to speak to my representative. I learned once more the value of a lawyer when one called me to ask if I would be part of a suit to gain marriage equality rights, an argument that ended up working. I was reminded last week as a judge issued a stay against yet another executive order of the value of a good lawyer- or two. All the jokes we might tell placed aside, we are gonna need a few good lawyers in the days ahead. So for this Friday Fusion, I am giving a shout out to the ACLU. Well done, good and faithful servants. Let's hope we all keep you fueled for the years ahead!
