Between the Lines
If you work at a law firm that is not represented in
this issue’s round up of law practices, here’s the long and short
of it: Your firm did not respond to our request for information.
In April we sent out faxes to the nearly 300 law firms listed in the
U.S. 1 Business Directory. We invited each firm to choose three practice
areas for our index and to provide other details not normally included
in our directory. Those that responded are listed under such practice
areas as Business Law, Immigration Law, and Patent Law and Intellectual
Property, starting on page 15. Year-round, requests for this issue
come in: "Where can I find a patent lawyer? A divorce lawyer?"
Rather than make suggestions, we send out the issue.
The listings are surprisingly entertaining. You may have known there
are attorneys who specialize in product liability or construction
litigation or entertainment. Of course, we wish you all well and hope
you will never need a lawyer for anything other than buying a house,
selling a business, or conferring great wealth upon your heirs. But
if you are looking for an attorney, here is a place to start.
Once again I am amazed at the ignorance of the general
public about service dogs. On May 5 my Seeing Eye dog Flora and I
attended the benefit of the Princeton Senior Resource Center at the
Doral Forrestal. Towards the end of the evening a waitress came up
to me asked if I would like some chicken to give to my dog, and I
said "no thank you." She then asked if I would like to take
it home with me to give to her later, and again I declined her offer.
A few minutes later I sensed that my dog was chewing on something
and reached down to discover a chicken leg sticking out of her mouth.
I pried her jaws open and removed the bone. I can only assume, because
of her persistence, that the waitress must have believed that she
could get away with it since I would not see her, making it all the
One obvious reason for not feeding my dog in a restaurant is so that
she will lie quietly under the table and will not beg for food. Secondly,
most people know that chicken bones splinter and are extremely dangerous
I applaud Princeton Borough for the wonderful signs they have hung
in their restaurants welcoming service dogs, following our last incident
a year ago. In addition, I urge restaurant owners to please educate
their staff that these animals are to be admired and ignored. For
me, this encounter put a damper on what was otherwise an elegant and
How I envy her that she was able to go and see the play, but after
reading her review, I felt I was there. As a long-time fan of John
Glover’s, I was glad to read that he did such a good job and seemed
to enjoy himself in the process.
