And get ready for a BlackBerry treat
I’m skipping my usual Thursday posting, as I don’t want to take you away from your family.
I think that my post next week will be a special treat. Here’s how it begins:
Over the past three decades, beginning with my role as a Senate Judiciary Committee lawyer for Orrin Hatch, I would guess that I have written well over half a million words about judicial nominees. Yet a single short BlackBerry message that I sent late on a frenzied evening in March 2004 might well have had vastly more impact than all those words and all the hours of research that underlay them.
May you and your loved ones enjoy a blessed Thanksgiving!
