So, I don't know. If you come to Alaska just be aware that there may be some fights over this issue. Hunting, fishing, hiking, camping, boating, etc all beckon May-September. I'll do my best this week to strike a balance between family and goofing off, but I intend to recharge my batteries as much as I can. I think every defense attorney has days where he is absolutely convinced that the criminal justice system system is not only corrupt but rigged. I've had more and more of them lately and I knew that after three years of never having time, it was time to take a break. Those of you who practice defense work know what I mean: this is a damn hard job.
P.S. we went to the opening of the Ninilchik river last night. We caught nothing between us. But the river is only going to get better and we are going back for sure. My first Alaska salmon is still swimming somewhere.
