Tossed Salad Friday

~~ I’m very sorry to scoff about something with such good intentions, but why would any group hold a "Working But Still Poor... Organizing for Economic Justice on LI” conference on a weekday, during work hours?

 

~~When I was studying for the bar exam in 1981, I went to a public library to escape distractions. As I prepped for a recent seminar presentation, I suddenly laughed as I reflected back on that long-ago need to flee to gain focus. What was I avoiding? Maybe a phone on the wall that no one called because they knew I was studying, or the daily newspaper?  I sure didn’t have to correspond with writers to three e-mails, post on two Twitter accounts, administer a Facebook page, or deal with clients, attorneys, title companies, lenders, writers, and a dog!

 

~~At that prepped-for seminar, I presented an ethics component, reminding lawyers that we cannot accept referrals that require us to owe protection or loyalty to someone other than our client. Someone turned in a course evaluation that said, “Too bad you need to repeat this. Attorneys should know better.”

 

~~May I share how much I detest pantyhose?  When the temperatures are in the 50s, and so are you, it’s hard to convey professionalism in bare legs.  Yet what other article of clothing do you wear that requires you to carry backup? Do you have an extra pair of shoes or carry an extra sweater? Of course not… but you better have a spare pair of hose in your bag so you don’t look disheveled walking into a professional gathering with a run down your left leg.

 

Have a great weekend! The Rangers tore at whatever heart cartilage has survived my stressful existence, and the Knicks are once again demonstrating that teams rarely rise above bad ownership.  If you’re into NCAA hoops, good luck with your brackets. That’s one madness I’ve never embraced.

LET’S GO RANGERS!

GO, NY KNICKS, GO!

LET’S GO METS!
