Writing With “E’s”

Several people have been exceptionally kind and complimentary in many of my “shop-talk” posts. A colleague with several decades of experience as a trial lawyer recently suggested that I could teach a writing class.

Moving On

Most of us have been there. Some of us are there now. Fading are the days of people keeping the same job for several decades before waltzing into retirement. Those kinds of stories are so rare now that they make the news. Most if not all of those stories are pretty amazing to read. There […]
