[Comments] (3) Legally Blonde: Last night in Business Law, the topic of discussion was employment law. Basically, the Civil Rights Act of 1964, otherwise known as Title VII, gives protected class status to seven groups of individuals, including race, color, age, disability, gender, religion, and national origin. As a white male, I am not a protected class, per se. But that's not the most disturbing part. As a blonde, I am discriminated against all the time; where's the protected class in that?

Each day we also have a classmate share an ethical thought. Yesterday's quote was astute and hit me pretty hard: "Is it ethical to do the right thing for the wrong reason?" For example, all of my VITA hours aren't necessarily for the betterment of society, but to further my skill base. So is it unethical to do service (as there is normally an alterior motive to simply serving others)?

And another question: Why do pessimists refuse to accept what they are and always say they are simply realists?
