    And to think people criticize lawyers for filing bulls**t lawsuits! They need to simply read this heart rending tale of woe. Obviously, she is entitled to far, far more than a million dollars for suffering one stupid teenager's ignorant comment. Asking for only a million once again shows how proud the legal profession must be of its restraint. I want to make sure the "anti-lawyer" crowd reads this! Please post your apologies here, folks!!

"The lawsuit says Lee has been unable to sleep and has suffered embarrassment, loss of enjoyment of life, alienation and mental anguish." The legal profession has been given a bad name by the pleading.
