FLG finally got around to approving some older comments. Mrs. P had an interesting one about how law firms are very short-term oriented when it comes to operating their business. This doesn't really surprise FLG, but he can't definitively say why.
Also, FLG had been meaning to read Banfield's The Unheavenly City for a long while, and an email from a reader asking if FLG had read it finally prompted him to do something about it. He read it during his Istanbul trip and will have some things to say about it later.
