Dean Kevin R. Johnson has kindly invited me to share with you my cycle trip to Florida. For the third year running, I am pedaling into America's heartland with Joey, a 1-pound "kangaroo court" puppet. Read about the trip, law and philosophy, and our rides from NYC to Postville, IA, and Nashville, TN, at rideforhumanrights.com.
As an adjunct member of the Brooklyn Law School faculty, in 1992 I started the first NYC clinical program dedicated to asylum work. During the 12 years I taught at Brooklyn, I taught for 5 years at Seton Hall. And ran my small private law practice. And attended nursing school. And took the laboring oar at home, so my spouse, Nancy Freund Heller, could support us and protect your retirement at TIAA-CREF. Spread thin, I became competent at many things, but not a star at any of them.
Some say the curse of stardom is being condemned to repeat one's performance endlessly. I dodged that curse. I am free to explore.
