Calling all Poets (from the OSB Legal Pubs blog)

But if you’re going to write haiku, please, please, please do it right. (Sigh.) Haiku isn’t what you wrote in 5th grade (or even for your first love or your first legal newsletter submission, no matter how much you were patted on the head for your, um, creativity.) Haiku is creative writing, but there are Rules, just like brief writing. (Sorry.)

My favorite for beginners “how to write haiku” book is this one by David Coomler, but there are others (including websites) and don’t forget Senryu, which can be described as Japanese satirical poems. (Senryu can be very, very funny or simply a gurgle of amusement.)

I like “using your keyboard one handed” from AbilityNet dot org in the U.K. (with or without Scotland).

There are lots of other instructions on searching the interwebs with one hand, e.g. use these search words: control alt delete one handed or computer keyboard one hand or other variations that tickle your fancy.

Surprise!: It depends…, but please do not make any assumptions that your kids will be able to view those documents or photos on your CDs (or DVDs) or other digital storage device.

From report [link to infoDocket post]: ‘But “there is no average, because there is no average disc.’

Hat tip to infoDocket.

The Oregon State Bar’s Ian Pisarcik, Legal Publications Attorney Editor, gives us a list of intriguing books for our reading pleasure:

As an attorney, two things are reasonably certain to occur in your lifetime: Sallie Mae will deduct an astronomically high student loan payment from your checking account and someone, somewhere will ask you if you’ve read To Kill a Mockingbird and if you were aware that John Grisham used to be a real honest-to-God practicing attorney. It is at this point that you will calmly try to explain that you read more than just legal thrillers...” Link to Ian’s blog post and current list of recommendations.
