Libby's Nightmare at Northwestern

Just came back from a speech by Patrick Fitzgerald, the special prosecutor in the CIA leak investigation. The talk was about public interest work and why all these law students should want to become prosecutors instead of going for the big bucks in private practice. Fitzgerald skillfully avoided any controversy and answered only one technical question on the CIA investigation. Nothing on Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney's former right-hand man or anything remotely news worthy. And nothing on squeezing journalists for info. But still, these speeches are such a great advantage of being at a top law school.
