Pot boiler. Not worth too much more. But not bad for a legal pot boiler. Peter Hale is the arrogant green lawyer born to privilege, who's father has exiled him to w=Whitaker County. It's a backwater, and Peter shows no humility whatsoever wrt being there. This seems to be the same story as Promised Land (see several pages back) but in a legal thriller. Better done though. Not much better, but at least the characters are less one dimensional.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
