The first lawyer shall be last
and the last lawyer first?

The counter-attack against Maclean's and its recent "Lawyers are rats" cover proceeds apace. Erstwhile Liberal political operative and National Post blogger and columnist Warren Kinsella wades in with a column called "The rats fight back".
As pretty much every lawyer will recall, at the end of July, Maclean's magazine made a bad decision to promote a bad book by a certain Philip Slayton about a few bad ex-lawyers.
He even manages to make a Biblical reference.
As it is said in the Gospel of Matthew: when the end times arrive, and God is separating the good ones from the bad ones, hypocrites will always "receive a greater damnation." So when Slayton condemns bill-padding -- then clearly implies that he engaged in the practice--it is eminently fair to draw attention to his suggested rank hypocrisy.
