Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (5/26/2017)
Who is looking forward to finishing up work and heading home to enjoy the long weekend? Boring NBA Playoffs so far, which should hopefully pick up come the NBA Finals. Perhaps you read about Draymond Green’s new trademark filings? That was a Heitner Legal job! A couple of days ago marked exactly seven months out of getting married. It’s a crazy and exciting thought. Prayers go out to everyone in England after the horrendous attack outside of an Ariana Grande concert. Just absolutely deplorable and sad. I hope that those kinds of atrocities come to an end and quickly.
