The Legal A-to-Z Cure

In yesterday's New York Times, the cartoonist Roz Chast explained that she combats insomnia by generating lists of diseases in alphabetical order.  Her poster of diseases, including zombiosis, is pretty phenomenal.  See Roz Chast, The A-to-Z Cure.   I believe Chast's insomnia cure could readily be converted for use by lawyers.  I already am imagining what a Torts version would look like.  Assault, Battery, Comparative Fault, Defamation, Economic Loss Rule, False Imprisonment, . . .

It's also a great game to play on long car rides -- I call it "Diseases, Disorders, and Maladies." Pick any letter and go! It starts out easy (hernia, hypothyroidism, hives), but soon you end up hollering out things like "hairy palms!" and "hit in the head with an anvil!" Medical professionals, for obvious reasons, aren't allowed to play.
