Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (9/11/2015)
Yes, I’m back. Hopefully on a permanent basis, but you never know. Multiple businesses, writing at Forbes, teaching at the University of Florida and University of Florida Levin College of Law, among other things, have kept me extremely occupied. But I can never forget about my baby, Sports Agent Blog. I also will never forget about the significance of this day — 9/11. May we all never forget the atrocities that were committed and do whatever we can to live in a peaceful, loving world.
