O.C. lawyer disbarred over child porn

E Gad! Every time I read something in a OC paper relating to “sex” the replies are so hateful. Those folks down there probably think going to the bathroom or blowing your nose is sexual act.

This is a dark day for the California Bar Association.

Meanwhile, middle schools are named after lawyers like Johnny Cochran who get double murderers exonerated.
