. . . doesn’t mean you should miss your haiku today.

Here’s three from our Welsh friend Matt Morden:




an old woman mops her step
before the rain stops 







last cast
a fisherman’s breath
becomes river mist




sea cave
only children fit through
a spring-water curtain


“thunderstorm” – Haiku Canada Newsletter  (Feb 2005)

spring sun behind clouds —

too much makeup

on her still-lovely face

tiny check  One reason I’m running late today:  Blawg Review #3 is   fishing pole

out at Appellate Law & Practice and Irrespressible Error has

accumulated too many meaty entree.  (Thanks for listing our piece

on applying to law school.)    For example, like your editor, BuffsLaw

seems sexual stereotyping and discrimination behind lawyer ethics

rules banning sex with clients (and suggesting it is the male lawyer

who is powerful and to be feared).


tiny check  Speaking of e-dawdling, Jeff Beard asks “Is technology making

us more scatterbrained?” 


pointerDudeSm   Having seen my Law Day post, Jeremy Richey sent me a heart-

warmer:  Southern Illinois University at Carbondale will present 12 one-hour

seminars on legal topics for the public, on April 30th, as part of their

Law Day celebrations. (SIUC news)  “Legal Research for non-lawyers”

looks interesting.  I’m not so certain a lot of the public is signing up for

“The fundamentals of restorative justice.”  Of course, I don’t think that

one day a year is enough.  There should be on-going programs that help

the public learn about, and how to protect, their rights.
