I’m taking the New York Bar Exam on Monday... twenty years after graduating law school, and not having practiced law since then. I expect to fail just as miserably as your minivan has failed the TUV. But I will continue undaunted and try again and again until I pass because I am the David Tracy of law. You are my Read more

I’ll be honest, the people leaving Jalopnik didn’t bother me too much because there are still some decent writers left and I honestly just pop in as a fairly mindless distraction from work. Had no real plans to change that and couldn’t really give a hoot about Spanefeller or hulk Hogan or whatever other garbage goes Read more
