Escaping Down the Ladder
Book Club is tonight but I'm not going. It's too cold. I did like the book, John Grisham's The Street Lawyer. It's about a successful, high-power attorney and his rejection of the glitter and gold. Unfortunately, in researching personal information that interested him, he ended up stealing property that wasn't his. In fact, it would mean the loss of his license to practice law and jail time.
My "cloistered brothers," would say, "If you can't do the time, don't commit the crime." Unfortunately, our main character, Michael Brock, didn't consider the rhyme. But anyway, that's not the real story. It's a concern, but the story is how Michael throws away his fast track career to become a street lawyer and become a better person for it.
