"How Do We Make Sure It Perdures?"


Shrinking revenues, rumors and panic over the possibly troubled future of a beloved institution, but Joe Klock's not worried:
“Barry puts its students first, and it seeks students that adhere to a value system that makes them different,” said Joe Klock, a Barry board of trustees member and Miami lawyer. “Barry fills a special role in Catholic education in our community and in serving a special constituency. These are hardworking kids, many from immigrant families. They’re not debating which island they’re visiting for spring break or which type of Maserati they’re buying.“I’m a big fan of Barry and the type of affordable, personal, public-service oriented education it offers.”
Here here, that's Joe letting it flow -- good for him.

The future's so bright he's gotta wear shades:
Klock, who believes Catholic universities play a distinct role in the higher-ed ecosystem, said he’s not panicked about the future of either school. Herald said Barry and St. Thomas have always been devoted to educating underprivileged students.“You have two institutions who have a very long history of working together in a common mission,” she said. “How do we make sure it perdures?”

  1. Just like Joe didn't care when partners with business were leaving Steel Hector in droves, leaving it in tatters.

  2. Endowments are important because schools can accrue investment income, diversifying their revenue streams beyond tuition, fees and grants.

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
