Lawyerist Acquires Bitter Lawyer

E-mail Print PDF

Lawyerist.com, "The lawyering survival guide," announced that it has purchased Bitter Lawyer from owner Rick Eid, writer and producer for Law and Order and Dark Blue.

For a time Bitter Lawyer boasted a diverse and colorful cast of characters, such as Bitter Paralegal and LF10. But, after the departure of editor Mark Thudium, the site fell into a steady decline.

Eventually, most of the new content was coming from only one source, our Editor in Chief BL1Y. And, as our readers are well aware, his writing alone isn't enough to keep a site afloat.

We hope the new owners will have better luck and restore what used to be a really great way to waste time at the office.

IL to Ban Trans Fat Sales (Except to Kids)

E-mail Print PDF

The Illinois House has passed a ban on trans fats and the bill is headed to the state Senate.

If passed, restaurants, vending machines, and other food vendors would be prohibited from selling foods that contain trans fat as of January 1, 2013.  There is an exemption for foods that naturally contain trans fat, such as milk and pomegranates, as well as for bakeries, which are heavy users of the heart-stopping oils.

Surprisingly (to everyone living outside of Illinois, but almost expected for people within the state) school cafeterias will be exempt from the ban.  That's right, schools.  In a state where schools can force students to eat cafeteria food and ban homemade lunches, there is an exemption allowing them to pump that state-mandated food with one of the most unhealthy substances known to man.
