I wish this were a bad joke, but sad to say it’s not. Several legal bloggers have been discussing this, including Consumer Law and Protection Blog: This Blog Is False and Misleading (in New York). (more…)

Snapped yesterday at Havana & Dartmouth:
Yes. It really says “convince store.”
Specifically, should this lawyer do it?
It’s been on my mind for awhile. Online MLIS programs at some schools make it possible to do this without moving to another city or state.
Am I too old? Could I be admitted? Would it be a waste of time and money if I were? What would I do with an MLIS degree if I earned one?
Comments are invited.
Can diet soda make you fat?
This is not a silly question. I love Diet Coke. I am not getting any younger and my days of maintaining a normal weight while blithely ignoring nutritional common sense are (sob!) well and truly over.
Prevention magazine cites research that drinking diet soda does not make you fat, at least when compared to drinking non-diet soda.
Just in time for Monday morning, too. I’ll raise my first can of Diet Coke in salute to the Prevention writers at lunch today. (Yeah, I know, there are other reasons not to overindulge in Diet Coke, but the weight thing is important too.)
Ann Richards. I’d moved away before she was elected Governor. I’m sure this is the millionth blog to mention that she died this week. The Texas state archives has a nice online biography and a few good pictures, including this one, the original of which is here including the comment:
Ann Richards brought a vitality and outrageousness to the governorship that had not been seen in decades.
Thank you, Governor Richards. For everything. (more…)
I leave early tomorrow morning on a road trip and won’t be back behind this counter until at least Friday night. Talk among yourselves while I’m gone.
A dear aunt, aged 90 and under home hospice care for several months, died last night. I’m driving the 10 hours to the old family stomping grounds to spend some time with my cousins and pay my respects, etc. My late aunt was one of those rare people who are strong and steady and quiet and patient and unselfish and just plain GOOD. A woman of faith, who believed deeply and never found it necessary to preach at people.
I think she was wise enough to know that it’s not about standing on a corner waving a Bible and hollering about Jesus to passers-by. It’s not what’s on your T-shirt, or the messages on the bumper stickers on your car. It’s not about waving your finger at someone in the grocery store and giving them an uninvited lecture on the Commandments. The most powerful sermon you will ever preach is life you live.
Her sermon was the best.
