What's being said

  • i don't get it

    I really don't get this.

    I mean I really can't figure it out. I don't know why the Law Tribune would publish this stuff.

    I don't know about you, but what I read was this: Norm Pattis, who has been vying for the title of crudest, rudest lawyer in Connecticut, if not the nation, says David Fein has destroyed the "collegiality" of the office and "needs better manners."

    Blindfolded,throwing a dart at one of the thousands of columns and blog entries Pattis has written is likely to yield an example of worse manners than just about anybody.

    How about the infamous blog post entitled "Dear Snotty Bitch, Back Off," for one example among so many

    And that is just his writings.

    Is nothing too preposterous for the Law Tribune to publish? Was this meant with a straight face? Don't editors have some responsibility to inform their colleagues that, you know, they've gone round the bend?
