In addition to my scholarship on contract language (thrilling!), I've also engaged in the more freewheeling kind of writing that blogging permits. In particular, sporadically I engage in polemic. I've never investigated polemic as a kind of writing. Can anyone suggest any resouces?

Last week I reported for jury duty at the NY Supreme Court in Nassau County. On display were the effects of private affluence and public squalor, brought to you by those who consider good government a scam. Here are some photos.

Songs you'd like to see made into movies? For me, what comes to mind right now is Mainstreet, by Bob Seger.

A Christmas tarte Tatin. I still need to find the best way to eliminate all the moisture from the apples.

In the contract extract in the screenshot, the defined-term parenthetical (shaded red) is in the wrong place. It should come right after the definition (shaded blue).

I've made fun of the different ways in which drafters remind us how the singular and plural work. The patient zero of this tendency is, I suspect, how the unnecessary defined term "Party" is routinely defined: "each individually a 'Party' and collectively the 'Parties'" (or some variant).

There's been a lot of discussion about simplified, or oversimplified, logos. I offer BMW's logo as an example.

Example 45,338 of the idioms I turn to reflecting my English upbringing: in a draft email I said that something "isn't my cup of tea." Yeah, BrE. I changed it.

I just used the word "trenchant" for the first time in umpteen years. Let's hear it for "trenchant"!

Are you in favor of broad or narrow use of hyphens in phrasal adjectives? Me, I'm on team broad. For example, in the phrase below, are the pretzels dark, or is the chocolate dark? It's the latter, but putting a hyphen between "Dark" and Chocolate" would prevent a reader miscue.

When it comes to his food, Enzo does OK. On offer today was a new flavor of meatloaf: beef and turkey with chopped cabbage, grated badger flame beets (I didn't make that up), raw eggs, and oatmeal. I added to the cooked meatloaf a bit of brown rice and some roasted butternut squash. Enzo approved.

When your password manager interferes with your document-assembly template: the defined term used for the first party to your contract is "the Kenneth".

Here's my tarte Tatin from Thanksgiving. It marks the latest step in a years-long trek. I started with a Martha Stewart recipe, then graduated to a recipe from The Bake School, from which I learned that you can caramelize sugar without any pesky water.

I'm unable to upload to Spoutible photos I've taken with my Samsung Galaxy 22. I've given the necessary permissions. Anyone have any suggestions?

Lentil soup? OK. Lentil soup with cornbread? Way more exciting.

While assessing the prose of a contract today, the phrase "deeply fukin stupid" came to mind. As it often does.
