This day in history from:

What a little research can do...

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Just human, I guess.

Acting on a tip of my partner (one of them to be exact, a U.P. Law Professor) and another source, I stumbled upon this blog entry of my former boss, and also a U.P. Law Professor, Atty. JJ Disini.

From this, it appears that this law professor with considerable legal stature weighed-in his two-cents on the issue of the search for the new UP Law Dean in his blog, naming and attacking some senior faculty members in the process. The law professors he attacked posted an open letter to him, which Atty. Disini, in turn, posted in his blog.

Then, this law professor with considerable legal stature apologized in a subsequent blog entry.

You don't have to take my word for it. You can research on it yourself. And of course, I don't want to link to his entries anymore, as I have completely lost what little respect I had for him a few days ago.

What I like in particular is this quote, from the said open letter to him:

YOU USED THE WORDS “ONE BIG, CRUEL FARCE.” THE BIGGEST, CRUELEST FARCE is that you raise the issue of absenteeism when – as many of your students would attest – you are perennially absent from your classes in Criminal Law and Criminal Law Review, and you miss even your own makeup classes. Your present and past students, some of them now members of the faculty, say that they considered your course as one of “self-study.” Awkward as it is, but can you can assure us that you have not skipped classes to attend to your private practice of law?

Turns out the guy does not even know his students personally or seen them in class or in court because he's always absent.

"Holier-than-thou" indeed.

Side Prayers

Lord Jesus,
Teach me to be generous,
Teach me to serve You as You deserve
To give and not to count the cost,
To fight and not to heed the wounds,
To toil and not to seek for rest,
To labor and not to ask for reward,
except that of knowing
That I do Your Holy Will. Amen

May every word I speak be from Your Truth...
I ask come from Your Wisdom...
May every case I handle receive Your Guidance...
May every heart, every life I touch, feel Your Love.

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying,
"Oh, that You would bless me indeed,
and enlarge my territory,
that Your Hand be with me,
that You would keep me from evil,
that I may not cause pain."

So God granted him what he requested.
