Equal Parts Hocus & Pocus

The Law is a sort of hocus-pocus science that
smiles in your face while it picks your pocket.
-H.L. Mencken

Happy Law Day to lawyers everywhere!  It seems appropriate that the day created as an homage to what it is we do and the field in which we do it should fall smack dab in the center of the work week.  Yet another year shall come and go without anyone being able to parlay Law Day into a long weekend getaway with the family.  Damn. 

Once upon a lifetime ago, my father counseled me as to the importance of being able to laugh at yourself.  If you cannot - Dad warned - then one day you are going to look around the room and realize that you are the only one who is not.  It can get pretty damn lonely living on the Island of Self-Created Importance.  

Do not get marooned out there yourself....
