With apologies to the Car Talk guys (particularly Ray who starts each show this way), this is from the "I wish I had thought of that first" department here at The Legal Whiteboard.
Mark Herrmann (left)*, chief litigation counsel at Aon, a former Jones Day partner (he did products liability litigation for us when I was at AlliedSignal going nigh on twenty years ago), author of The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law, and now "firstname.lastname@example.org," has posted an open letter to the University of Chicago Law School requesting that it finally remove him from the wait list for the entering class of 1979.
I could send that same letter to Yale.
* Apropos of almost nothing except the parenthetical reference to the location of Mark's picture, the Boston Globe this morning ran a story on Planned Parenthood's endorsement of Elizabeth Warren over Scott Brown in the Senate race here in Massachusetts. I don't know if the editor meant to be making a statement with the following caption (which also appears on the web site, where if it were a directional reference it should have been "above"): "'We’re excited to be endorsing Elizabeth Warren (left),’ said Dianne Luby of the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund."
