Send Lawyers Guns and Money

Well Well Well. It’s 2am, I’m not quite finished studying for Int law exam tomorrow. but did turn in my brief a few hours ago. One thing I"m learning about International Law is that A) we are THE MOST LITIGIOUS country in the World and B) no matter where you are, if you didn’t protect yourself in a solid contract, it’s still best to have LAWYERS GUNS AND MONEY.

So I’ll post Warren’s lyrics  here. And blast it in the car tomorrow on  way to my exam to burn into my brain things like Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods 2003(CISG). 1976 Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA), International concessions such as BOTs and BOOs and all sorts of things  i’m trying to keep straight. I must admit, I did get a big ego from my last exam, but now, I’m more nervous about this one. Wish me luck. Then I have to do a brief about a case from 1993 based in Saudi Arabia Where the US Supreme Court ruled for the Saudi’s becuase of the language of FSIA.

So: Here’s an appropriate ending to the eveing, now that it’s 2:20am:

Well, I went home with the waitress
The way I always do
How was I to know
She was with the Russians, too

I was gambling in Havana
I took a little risk
Send lawyers, guns and money
Dad, get me out of this

I’m the innocent bystander
Somehow I got stuck
Between the rock and the hard place
And I’m down on my luck
And I’m down on my luck
And I’m down on my luck

Now I’m hiding in Honduras
I’m a desperate man
Send lawyers, guns and money
The shit has hit the fan

Send lawyers, guns and money…

— Warren Zevon

Until next time, your friend, who’s a little tired and a little nervous!
