Yeah, Robert. But you know what? This group of lawyers isn't made of of employees and members of the ACLU equivalent in Pakistan. These are attorneys from every area of the law taking time away from their jobs to do something that they feel strongly about - even if they haven't chosen civil rights as a career. And even if it may detrimentally affect their practice or career and doesn't necessarily benefit them directly or immediately. That's the real "takeaway" on this one.

John, You say it's surprising that lawyers in Pakistan are taking such a principled stand to uphold their Constitution? That's pretty insulting to lawyers in the ACLU, Public Defenders Offices, and others who devote millions of hours a year to pro bono work for the poor and victimized people of this country.
