: Dear Mr. Trumane, I have just read your notes about esquires being a titles of nobility....I don't know where you found that esquires is a tiltle of nobility,but maybe you need to look more into that subjust of nobility. You know I think that maybe some people need to know that all lawyers are not out to "get" us...It is so interesting to me that we study the laws but belittle those that do it for a living...
Dear Mr. Coffey,
Mr. Trumane doesn't mean to belittle those who practice LAW for a living. He is condemning those who practice "public policy" for a living. In typical symbolaeographic fashion, you patronizingly question Mr. Trumane's knowledge about attorney's being titles of nobility. The text of the 13th Amendment to our national Constitution prohibits titles of HONOR as well. The text of the 13th Amendment was drafted from Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England. Blackstone classifies Knights, Attorneys, Barristers, and other sundry wannabees as titles of HONOR. Judges fit the category as well. You are technically correct when you raise the question about Attorneys being titles of nobility. Attorney's are titles of honor. However, here is a question for you: Why are all first year law students told by their professors that Attorneys are titles of nobility?
