In the Stephen Sondheim musical, “Anyone Can Whistle,” there is a song called “Everybody Says Don’t” – and it is a catchy number. The song is on my mind today. It is a somewhat philosophical number from Act II of that musical and I will reproduce the lyrics in full bel...

Today, Vanessa and I are headed off to an overnight camping trip with our son. We will share a tent and "enjoy" (as much as one can) this scouting adventure. This is our second such excursion. And this weekend getaway has me thinking about the "wild" - both literally a...

I've been on trial for the last two weeks. It is a tough case. It has been in active litigation for almost five years. For the last two weeks we've spent countless hours trying to settle a lot of thorny issues. My client, a very perceptive and intelligent guy, has rema...

This morning, the Anglosphere was in a collective moment of batshit crazy. Tweets, posts, radio and TV - there was a ubiquitous and species-wide insanity taking hold. Over a wedding. The BBC breathlessly tweeted "find someone who looks at you that way Harry looks at Me...

WARNING: Frank Sinatra references ahead. 

It was a very nice Thanksgiving week. I drove Vanessa and Felix to Midway on Tuesday so they could get a head start on Texas and the week’s festivities. I stayed behind a day for work and to drop in on an Open House at the David...
