Thank you so much for the advice! I am currently looking to switch careers and I have been out of the “normal” work force for a couple years (quit social services to take a break, ended up nannying for the last 2 years) and I’m ready to get back out there. I have a varied work history but a lot of transferable skills, so this helped a lot with figuring out what to focus on and the difference between objective and summary. Thanks again! I’ve been reading through a lot of the other articles on the site as well. Lots of very valuable information!
The pleasure I take in the sentence has nothing to do with the case or with the merits of either the majority's or the dissent's arguments. It is the pleasure of appreciating a technical achievement — here the athletic analogy might be to target shooting — in this case, Scalia's ability to load, aim, and get off a shot before his victims knew what was happening. I carry that sentence around with me as others might carry a precious gem or a fine Swiss watch. I pull it out and look at it. I pull it out and invite others (who are sometimes reluctant) to look at it. I put it under a microscope and examine its innermost workings.
