An Interesting Apology . . .

Did you catch Monday’s apology from the dean of Harvard Business School, for the school’s sometimes offensive treatment of its women professors and students?   Apparently Harvard has been prompted to improve its ways in part due to an unflattering profile in the New York Times last year, recounting...



Happy New Year

While December 31st is just one day on the calendar, technically no different from any other, I still look at it as a special transition.  A new year is ahead, filled with opportunity and promise.  I made several big changes this year to come closer to living my dream,...



Change Is Good

Many of you may not know that I have been off the blogging scene for a few months because of my relocation this fall to Boulder, Colorado.  While I had intended to make blogging a regular habit during this transition, I found it very difficult to achieve that goal,...

Quotes That I Like

I was away last week attending board meetings in Colorado and taking a few days off, after spending the prior week at the ABA Litigation Section Annual Conference in Chicago.  One of the things I’ve been looking forward to upon my return is the chance to take a class...



Sponsors Matter
