Accepting My Honor With Humility and Casual Diffidence
Posted by Alan Childress
Apparently I have been named Time Magazine's "Person of the Year," and my mother is beaming with pride. My father still is not impressed. I can't thank enough all the little people, like Jeff and Mike, mostly because who has time now that I have to go update my curriculum vitae. (I try to put out of my mind the fact that Adolph Hitler was named their Man of the Year like in 1937.) Avid reader of LPB knows that this latest honor follows on my being named "a popular law professor," not by my students of course but rather by the haute tattoo community. I accept all such honors with the same sort of pride.
