Quote of the Day - By the time a man realizes that maybe his father was right, he usually has a son who thinks he's wrong.
My son is going to start blawgging with me here on MIPTC. He's a second-year law student at the University of Iowa, my alma mater.
So, shortly - although the debut date is up in the air - you'll see one-a-week posts from Michel J. Ayer. The writing ticket for this blawg will be a lawyer and a law student, as a father and son team blawgging legal news, each with our own perspective.
The question for you to answer, as our readers, will be whether the apple fell far from the tree. I know my son, and I don't think so. On the other hand, he might tell you otherwise.
The focus of MITPC won't change, and Dad still will retain complete editorial control. Even so, I won't be issuing writing assignments. Michel will cover the legal items he wants to cover and pass along his observations. Does that mean I'll become the dreaded editor?
Nope. More of a proofreader, although that red pen may sneak in from time to time.
In case you are thinking about it, I Googled Michel for you. (Yes, there's no "a" in his name. Don't ask me, ask his mother.) There's not much out there about him. In fact, I could find only one article, and that focused more on his wife, Stacy. So stay tuned: you'll learn more here.
And no, I'm not a grandfather, and have no desire to be one anytime soon. You wouldn't hear that news from me first, anyway.
