Indeed. Why should a shepherd's work be less important that
a lawyer's? Why, I think a good lawyer should easily be able
to argue a very convincing case that it is MORE important,
not less!

And of course, if the lawyer really believed his own argument,
he ought to take a pay cut. As a matter of fact that was exactly
what my adoptive father on Kibbutz Tsor'ah, Arthur Abrahams,
did in the late 'fifties -- he had studied to be a lawyer in South
Africa, but chucked it all up to go herd sheep on a kibbutz.
