    Unions acting like thugs? You could knock me over with a feather.

    Tangentially, is there really no appropriate place to put "Esq." after your name, without looking like Marie Antoinette? I sometimes do it to make clear to the recipient of a letter that I am a lawyer, so I don't get the dumbed-down version of things. I guess I'll have to stop.

    I wouldn't know Linus. My letterhead makes it pretty clear to recipients that they're dealing with an attorney.

    While I don't have a problem with receiving letters addressed to Me, Esq., I find the practice of putting it behind one's own name affected, and indicative of pomposity in a profession already plagued with self-importance. After years of reading letters from attorneys, I've noticed that those who so adorn their names tend in that direction. And this may be a southern thing, but I meet lawyers who preface their names with "Attorney." As in, "This is Attorney John Smith." Don't get me started on that.

    I note that Ms. Chen, properly, also signs by her title of General Counsel. Anyone receiving the letter would know what the title means.

    Chinese consular demands removal of documentary from Melbourne International Film Festival. Ensuring that instead of 20 people seeing it – it will be sold out and get a wider distribution.

    Perhaps they should run the ad in California, where the anti-SLAPP remedy is available.
