RIP Dan Donnellon

I lost a very devoted reader last week when Dan Donnellon died far too young.  Dan was a former stand- up comic who became a lawyer.  He was just about the funniest guy I’ve ever known, as well as one of the nicest.  Dan frequently commented on my blog, and I would fire back.  This led us to doing a podcast together, which we titled “Educated Idiots.”  It was a fair description, as we proved by totally messing up the first episode. We literally sat in front of a microphone, talked to each other about Cancel Culture and had a great time.  So great in fact that we forgot to hit the record button.  Kind of idiotic.

We did manage to record one episode of the podcast.  I will miss Dan a lot, so no great legal insights here, just a fond farewell to a good friend.
