Law school is a poor launch pad for a patent prosecutor

Last week (Friday's) Wall Street Journal had a review of a new book by Steve Dublanica titled "Waiter Rant", observations of his life as a waiter. One comment in the book review struck me as to its patent world relevance: Considering some of the [difficult] customers he has to deal with, Mr. Dublanica's background was the perfect training for his job: four years in a seminary studying to be a priest followed by work at rehab centers and homes for the mentally retarded. Sounds like good training for dealing with PTO policy rules changes, and the resulting idiotic Office Actions.
