Legal Affairs Magazine Offhandedly Insults Practicing Lawyers

I thought that Evan Schaeffer would have picked up on this story by now.
Legal Affairs, apparently an important magazine covering legal issues, is conducting a poll to name the Top 20 Legal Thinkers in America. The list of candidates includes Academics, Judges and Writer/Commentators.
Uh, what about practicing lawyers? I guess my lawyer friends and I don’t count as “thinkers” in the rarefied air found in the halls of Legal Affairs.
Despite my apparent deficiencies as a “thinker,” I have a few thoughts about Legal Affairs magazine and the attitude it embodies. I doubt, however, that Legal Affairs will find them in the top 20 thoughts directed its way in 2004.
It’s great that blogs are going to make publications like Legal Affairs totally irrelevant.
