Open Letter

Dear Bartender at the Miami Airport Hilton: 
Anyone who thinks a Tom Collins is made with vodka and not gin is too dumb to pour. 
Everyone else in the world.

LSAC should tell us this stuff before we come to law school

According to ethical rules, attorneys can only charge clients reasonable fees, and are not allowed to sleep with them.

If this was more widely known, I'm guessing that applications to US law schools would drop dramatically.

On backstabbers

Following Del. Sam "Zell" Arora's inexplicable will he/won't he over voting for gay marriage in Maryland (the bill didn't pass the House this year, and is on hold until next January), I had a few chores to do.

First, I had to rip the "Sam Arora for Delegate" sticker off my bumper.

Second, I had to post a public apology on for having donated to his campaign.

Third, I had to check the list of donors to his campaign against the dozens of names I'd given him from my fundraising database, to make sure that my donors weren't going to hold it against me forever that I'd given their info to a cheap, cowardly liar.

Finally, I had to start looking for a candidate to run against him in three years, when he's up for re-election (sadly, we don't have a recall provision here in MD).

Treachery doesn't just hurt feelings: it takes up a lot of time, too.
