I had occasion to check on the number of lawyers per capita. state by state. Sure enough, there are the usual suspects--Washington DC ahead of the pack (by a factor of 13!). New York Delaware, Massachusetts. California only 14th, but wait--California in a tie with Missouri.
Say again, Missouri? What is it in Missouri that requires 10.9 lawyers per capita?
Update: But see Bob Lawless comment below explaining why the number is bogus.
