May 06, 2012 Random thoughts of the week
On Sundays, I sometimes veer well beyond the law in my blog entries.
On my Twitterpage, https://twitter.com/jonkatz5, I sometimes jot out news items, legal ideas, and personal ideas of interest. However, it can be hard to view Twitter archives after a few weeks. Therefore, starting with this blog entry, I am assembling some of my recent random thoughts.
