    Good luck with year #2, sir. And stay perky.

    PS…I’m liking the blog…both the ‘look’ and the content. Good work.

    Hey I stumbled across your page while studying for finals and saw that you live in Hoboken and are a fan of Arthur Leonard’s work. I’m a 2L at NYLS as well as his research assistant and contributing writer for his journal Lesbian and Gay Law Notes, and I also live in the boken – crazy huh? Small world! Anyway, just a note to say I enjoyed the blog! I’m off to cram some more Civil Rights Law between my ears.

    Love the pic. Was it taken in Rome? My first attempt to look at your blog resulted in your avatar picture. It’s nice to see your face.

      Shockingly enough, that photo was taken in Little Rock, Arkansas. I’m from there, though I now live in Hoboken. I am always amazed where people think it was taken. A lot of people assume it is some part of New York City. It makes me feel good that Little Rock has some places that at least look metropolitan!

      I don’t put too many photos of me up, but maybe I will now that my husband has a nicer camera, and I have an iPhone =)

    Hey Richard, I drove by Little Rock on the way home to CT after law school. We couldn’t find a place but your awesome bridges made up for it. I don’t remember the name of the place but we were close to the airport I think.

      Hey Trinh, which place were you talking about? I was also completely unaware we had good bridges. =)
