I Guess We All Handle It Differently

Awful story in the Star Telegram about this pregnant Anna ISD kindergarten teacher who was killed in an auto wreck this morning.

But, at the risk of sounding callous, this line from the story bothered me: "Dallas lawyer Scott Palmer, who has been retained by Selkirk’s husband, confirmed that the teacher was 15 weeks pregnant."

One of the first things you do is retain a lawyer?

Edit: Didn't post one comment of a fictitious conversation between lawyer and client in this case. That, sir, was simply way over the top.
