Flattery - not

I received this unexpected little "a lawyer helps" pin in the mail yesterday.     It made me laugh.  It would have been a huge overstatement to say that I "helped" as a lawyer,  although I may deserve credit for going to great lengths, and earning the small salary to prove it, to avoid being an "unhelpful lawyer."    But when I finally read the letter that came with the pin I had to laugh even harder -- apparently the state bar finally figured out that I am 60 now, and this pin is a symbol of my Old-ness.    They have got to be kidding.

Hmmm, or maybe they just sent it to everyone in the bar.    I see, on second glance, that (in addition to the explanation of my 'master' status) there is also a brochure on pro bono work.   Sometimes I am just too sensitive!

I think you need to make a voodoo doll for the bright sparks who came up with that one and give that pin an honorable use.
