faint first star

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 1:51 pm

Such a pleasant Saturday.  Before heading out to a sunny winter day, I just

“strolled” my favorite haiku garden and found one of my favorite haiku poets.


As a result, here are three poems from The Heron’s Nest by George Swede:  “thnLogoF” 



ebb tide
the sand castle moat
still showing clouds





old tombstone
losing its name
faint first star


by the statue
of the polar explorer
lingering snow

cirrus clouds and

a dusting of snow —

the midday moon is shedding

“tinyredcheck”   Frankly, my morning was not all pleasant.   I spent time at MyShingle

“discussing” reasonable contingency fees with Eugene, at a post that had

been about needing to have retainer agreements. (I don’t start these fights.

I just point out the logical responsibilities that go with professional & fiduciary

duties, and the primacy of the client’s, not the lawyer’s interests.)  


tiny check  Mike “Fedster” Cernovich never stops making work for me.  Please

go to C&F and answer his question:  Is a public defender system better for

indigent clients than having assigned counsel?  Or as Mike puts it:  “Is Mr.

Giacalone right?” that PDs are better.


tiny check  Thanks to Bob Ambrogi and Kevin Heller for pointing to Evan D.

Brown’s new Internet Cases weblog — a topic of interest to many of us.
