Tale of a customer service fail (GrubHub)
Last night, we decided to order in and catch up on some shows, so I did what I often do when I'm out of town--order from GrubHub.  I ordered nice and early (yes, we're early risers, so we're early diners, too), on the theory that the food might take more th...

Proudest moment of my time at UHLC.
I had so many good times at UHLC, including (surprisingly enough) the post-Tropical Storm Allison time, when everyone at the law school -- including those inside the school and our alumni and other supporters -- pulled together to rebuild just under $50 mil...

Juxtaposition of some workplace advice.
Two stories caught my eye today:  the Wall Street Journal article describing the new Goldman Sachs philosophy-that it's willing to let junior people leave the office between midnight and 7 a.m.- and the Above the Law post by the wonderful Mark Herrman abo...

Hooray for Judge Phyllis Frye (a University of Houston Law Center alumna)!
Front page of the New York Times ( here )!  I've known Judge Frye for around 15 years, and she and her wife Trish are lovely, warm, wicked-smart people.  It's so great to see the New York Times tell the world about her!

Banality of hate (repost, with a comment).
Professor LeRoy makes an important point about failing to realize the precursors to evil ( here ).  By staying silent when evil occurs , we are making our world less safe and diminishing our civilization.

So proud of UNLV's Howard R. Hughes College of Engineering!

The world lost a mensch.
My old friend, Seymour Serebnick, just passed away.  I loved his boundless curiosity and his deep generosity of spirit.  He knew of my love of Disney and was always finding me rare surprises.  And he and I loved to talk about the law.  He's in my heart, and...

Just a couple of thoughts on <i>ASARCO.</i>
I think that the dissent was closer to being right than the majority opinion was ( of course I think so:  I was one of four folks on this amicus brief ), and that Congress should fix the problem by adopting the test that we proposed in our brief (fees for s...
