windowless office

autumn day

the empty pillow

glows white

 

 






windowless office

a fly buzzes against

my glasses

 

 

leaves flying

 

autumn evening

also nowhere to go

skittering leaf

    • Patience Pays and Saves:  NYT reports that prices for flat-panel TVs will fall greatly

      throughout 2005.   But, “We do not want to talk about predictions of price drops,”

      said Lee Simonson, the director of Best Buy’s television division. “We want people to buy now.”




    •  Carolyn Elefant has Commented thoughtfully on our disagreement over mandatory
      pro bono and solos.  At MyShingle today, however, we learn that — while opposing

      mandatory pro bono — she favors forcing “each senior lawyer to train a fixed number of

      junior lawyers” and paying the junior lawyers, to help them establish solo firms.   Go figure.





    • AntitrustProf Blog discusses the possible impact of Raich v. Ashcroft, the interstate wine-

      selling case on antitrust law.   We note that the Mass. Bar Advocates have been arguing

      their group boycott can’t violate federal antitrust law because it has no impact on interstate

      commerce.  Raich could help settle that issue.  And, see Kerr and Fed84 on NYT and federalism.

  1. Mesothelioma is a disease that is almost 100% preventable; the only known cause is via exposure to the deadly mineral Asbestos. It comes from inhaling the particles of dust as the asbestos degrades; eating away at the lining of your lungs and developing into a deadly cancer. Dust that was inhaled in clouds of white powder, dust that was carried home on the clothes of the men who built this country, dust that was cleaned from the clothes by the wives and children who supported their sole provider at home, dust that was packed around the heating systems in houses and offices and schools, dust that carried a deadly price; and dust made a fortune in blood money for the companies that produced it.
