In more uplifting, yet also nerdy, news, I am off to the Seventh Circuit Bar conference this Sunday through Tuesday in Milwaukee. One of the talks is called "The Rule of Law in Iraq," and will be given by the Justice Attache to the US Embassy in Iraq. And one of the speakers for the big dinner on Monday is Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. Can't wait! Technically, I'm not yet a member of the Seventh Circuit Bar but my clerking credentials get me through the door... and I'll become a member of the Seventh Circuit Bar on May 22, which isn't too far away.
Rob and I are heading up early on Sunday to catch a Milwaukee Brewers game, which is an added bonus. Baseball and the law all in one weekend. Sweet. :)
