Just several yards from my cocoon-like office here in Suite 250 of the Suffolk University Law School, grips and gaffers are preparing one of our classrooms as a set for Bachelor No. 2, a movie starring Kate Hudson, Dane Cook, and Alec Baldwin. (Recall that our library was featured in The Departed.) It's not too glamorous yet, just lots of lights and wires and the grips and gaffers. I'm hanging out in the hallway, seeing if my resemblance to Owen Fiss can get me discovered. Son James, however, is coming in later this afternoon, and as you can see from the photo on the left, he bears a remarkable resemblance to a popular young actor. Could it be so long Stanford, hello Hollywood?
And just the other day, I happened to notice that my property and real estate transaction prof from nigh on thirty years ago, Paul Goldstein, had written a novel "Errors and Omissions" that had the featured spot in the window of the Suffolk Bookstore. I'm too cheap to buy a book written by somebody I know, so we ordered it from the library. I read the first chapter last night, and something in me kept resisting the idea that it's actually pretty good. I'm just hoping there's no graphic sex scenes. Not from a guy who taught us fee simple absolute. (By the way, the customer comments on Amazon read a lot like my teaching evaluations: some love it, some despise it, and a couple think he has promise but isn't there yet.)
