What I’m Reading – Sunday, 19 June 2016 – The Sunday New York Times & A Matter of Conscience by Sherry Hoppe

We were out @ the beach for Father’s Day.

The Mojowoman (my leggy wife) asked what I wanted for Father’s Day. I said that I’d love some beignets and a copy of the Sunday New York Times. She said, “Done.”

It’s $6 for the NYT, but worth every penny. Unfortunately, the bagger @ Publix ripped the cover of my copy when she shoved it into the paper bag.

Probably the best story in the paper – in my humble opinion -was about the collapse of law-school education. The NYT visited Valparaiso University’s law school and reports on its problems attracting applications and on VU’s law grads’ struggles with debt, the bar exam, and with finding employment. The story is here –

Also, I finished Sherry Hoppe’s A Matter of Conscience about the murder trial of her late husband, former Auburn football star Bobby Hoppe. It was good and I’ll try to get a review up in the next few days.

About mobilemojoman

I have been a Mobile resident for about a decade. Working as a college professor keeps me off the streets and pays the bills. I am married to a woman (the MojoWoman) who is a much better person than I am and we have two beautiful girls who keep us both jumping. My interests are varied - food & drink, sports, politics, exercise, books, travel, Mardi Gras, and all of life's rich pageant. In the future, I'd like to learn more about sailing, photography, Cajun/Creole cooking, making beer and wine, and writing.
