I shouldn’t even bother with the paper chase.
Being a county-seat lawyer has its appeal.
Or owning/editing a small-town paper.
Or running a niche magazine.
Not that I’m being lazy – quit the opposite. Who does more, the editor/owner/publisher of a county seat’s newspaper or the night desk crime reporter for a single district in a major metropolis?
Who does more immediate good, an associate in a major corporate or lobbying firm or a country lawyer who does works for everyone in town that has a court date?
Money’s as important as fellowship.
