I seldom chime in with any comments,
primarily because I’m not a practicing
attorney, but I sure do like the tone of
the recent issues of NWLawyer. I was
brought to tears by the article about
Susan Amini in the latest issue [July-August 2013 NWLawyer]. And Trent
Latta’s light-hearted articles are a nice
addition. So was Arthur Simpson’s
article about his pro-bono efforts in
the Yakima area, as well as the article
about Tim Nodland and his wine artistry in the March edition. And, even
though I’m not a music follower, I continue to read and enjoy all of editor
Michael Heatherly’s Bar Beats, no matter what they are about. So, nice going.
keep up the good work.

I just finished reading Mr. Murray’s
account of growing up in eastern Montana and felt moved to share how much
I loved it. His writing is crisp and well-paced, and left me wondering if a collection of similar short stories (
memories) would be forthcoming. Please do
consider including more creative writing selections as they definitely beat
the constant — but necessary — legal
