(sigh) it’s Love Litigating Lawyers Day

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu — David Giacalone @ 12:04 pm

As we discussed rather fully one year ago today, August 31st has been declared to be ”Love Litigating Lawyers Day.”   Even our friends at Overlawyered.com would grudgingly admit that litigating lawyers are often a necessary evil in our society and justice system.  Nonetheless, the f/k/a Gang would much prefer to celebrate Love Mitigating Lawyers Day, along with Love Literary Lawyers Day (such as all those poets).  Until we can, we offer senryu about a lawyer or two.
