After a whirlwind trip to Seattle to speak at the Washington State Bar Association, I'm heading home again. I'd forgotten what a wonderful city this is--full of cool bars and great seafood. From my hotel room, I can see Pudget Sound, the space needle and the (San Juan?) mountains in the background. It didn't hurt that yesterday was one of the only clear days this month. I also got to see a hero of mine, Paula Deutsch--who if you've read the book you know all about, Anyway, she is now a federal public defender here in Seattle and as inspiring as ever. All in all a fine trip.
