MSBA Legal News Digest

Wednesday, January 21, 2015


Bad things: injustice, domestic violence and child labor. Good things: generous people, birthday parties and Harry Potter. Chocolate bunnies? Generally good, unless your doctor has told you otherwise, but for me it depends on cocoa content (the higher the better) so I'm on the fence on that one. Coincidently, you can read up on all of these topics and much, much more in this week's issue of LND.
