Springer Spouts Off On Ethics?

05-17-08_Springer.jpgThe controversial Northwestern Law School alum Jerry Springer spoke to the graduating law school class last night. He gave a speech that lasted about 15 minutes, and quoted his mother, Winston Churchill, and Socrates. The 1968 graduate told the Class of 2008:

"Let's assume that your prime discomfort with me is based on the ethics of what I do for a living. Well, that's a fair question -- worthy of serious response -- because on this your graduation day, I can tell you with some confidence that you too will likely deal with these same ethical considerations, no matter what path your career takes.''

Huh? He’s just doing what he does for the money, right? [S-T]
