Post 1 - Ceremony in Frankfort

Today, Barry's son, Rick, was officially sworn in as an attorney.  In an impressive ceremony, members of the Supreme Court of the Commonwealth of Kentucky, met in the House of Representatives chamber at the capital in Frankfort, where 144 new lawyers were given the oath of office.  By the way, Kentucky is the only state that requires new lawyers (and other elected officials) to swear that they have never taken part in, or never assisted in, a duel!  Apparently, it used to be a big thing, but nowadays, it's just one of those anachronisms that makes life interesting.
After the ceremony, we met Mr. Justice Cunningham, representing western Kentucky, and he took us on a tour of his office and the Supreme Court chambers.  Impressive!

So now, the lawyer jokes can begin in earnest.
