pro bono for whom?

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 7:13 pm

Check out your editor’s Guest Post at Crime & Federalism: pro bono Publico Relations,

for a discussion of the proposal before the New York State Bar Association to grreatly

expand the definition of pro bono services.


frosty night–
seven poor men
in a huddle

my dream comes true–
this spring my god
the god of the poor


all according to plan, yet
I’m cold!

                                                     from Kobayashi Issa, translated by David G. Lanoue  



Ken Lammers of the CrimLaw weblog has been covering (originally at my request)

a jailhouse confession by a 21-year-old man, who admitted brutally killing his aunt

last week in Troy, NY.  (See Pitcher Jailhouse Interview, WRGB/CBS 6 News, Jan. 12,

2005).  It is an interesting and sad tale, with lots of issues for lawyers (and citizens).

I’m too anxious to share the haiku of our newest Honored Guest Poet, Peggy Willis Lyles, to write a proper introduction (which will come tomorrow).  See for yourself why:


bitter wind . . .
the hand that cups the flame

snowed in
the wedding-ring quilt
lumpy with children

winter night
he patiently untangles
her antique silver chain
