A lawyer with a code of ethics?!? Give me a break. (just bustin your chops Eric)

And I dont buy into the whole "aikido is your ethic" stuff. Sorting out normative ethics is a genuine pain in the arse, and I would rather do other stuff (like train, drink beer, play music, drive my motorcycle fast around sharp corners, cause a ruckus, etc.) than worry about "right action" or whatever you want to call it. Aikido is difficult enough without throwing the whole "this is how you ought to treat each other" stuff in.
