I was both pleased and pained a few weeks ago to read an article on how the Connecticut Bar Association has voted to create positions in its House of Delegates for representatives of minority bars. I think this is an important step in getting more diversity into the association, which is a great thing. I was pained that one member of the membership committee was quoted as saying that some folks think the leadership of the CBA is too old, too white and too male. The truth hurts.
