Giving Thanks and Asking Questions
With Thanksgiving about to come, I have much to be thankful for. A great family, immediate and extended, a great job, and great colleagues. Beyond that, I have thoughtful and insightful students, who go on to to become thoughtful and insightful lawyers (for the most part), and I appreciate that I have a small role in their futures. (Student evaluations are long completed, just so you know).
Here are a few things I hope to be thankful for: (1) Safe completion of a 4-mile race tomorrow; (2) A safe drive home this weekend; (3) A solid exam for (and from) my BA students; and (4) A Detroit Lions victory tomorrow.
At least I have a reasonable expectation of the first three. Looking forward, here's one other thing to keep an eye on - of the General Motors executives who bought shares in the IPO, only one, CEO Dan Akerson, bought more than 3000 shares, according to SEC reports. I don't know if that's low, but it kind of seems like it.
Regardless, a happy and safe Thanksgiving to all.
