The weather has been beautiful this past week. I have been soaking up the sun and hitting the courts, trying to get my tennis game back to what it once was. Carl Krauser made it to New Zealand and is ready to put in some great work for the Waikato Pistons. Many of our Minor Leaguers have begun play, and we have been updating their progress on our Facebook and Twitter pages. One more week of law school and then a couple of exams. After that, the law school portion of my life will come to a close. I will be back in South Florida for the first half of May. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
