I was first introduced to Robert E. Lee's writings when I was growing up in South Carolina. This knowledge was furthered while I was in college as a member of the Kappa Alpha Order. Now, as a practicing attorney in New Orleans, I constantly strive to be a Southern Gentleman in all that I do. I was excited to see General Lee as the topic of a post on The Art of Manliness but was horribly disappointed by the cheap shot taken at attorneys in general. I must say it goes against everything you espoused in your article. To blanket all attorneys as a "demeaning example" is as far from an action that Lee would take as I can imagine. Not to worry, I, and my fellow attorneys will survive yet another slight. I would ask, however, that you seriously consider who you are purporting to write under the guise of before resorting to name calling and petty lawyer jokes.
Dear Miles:Please accept my apologies. Your advice and point is well taken.Thank you for the civil rebuke.All the best,RGW
