Message From Our Board President

Comedic juggler Michael Davis offers the following food for thought:  If a cat always lands on its feet, and buttered toast always lands butter-side down, what happens to a cat with a piece of buttered toast taped to its back?  It makes the mind – and the hypothetical cat – spin. (P.S. - No cats were harmed in the conceiving of this scenario.)

The first week of law school (long, long ago) my classmates and I were told to “get used to living with ambiguity” and that the answer to many legal questions is “it depends.”  Groan. True in the law, and true in life.

Neither I, nor buttered cats I suppose, find this to bea particularly comfortable proposition. Paradox and ambiguity are SFUU’s theme for August.  It will be interesting to hear how this is explored. I will say one thing in favor of the ambiguous and paradoxical – it keeps life interesting!
