    Stephen, permit me respond to the anonymous comment by “Icarus”. There is nothing about your disclaimer that “tempts fate” or “invites disaster.” Nor is it beyond the understanding of an “unsophisticated litigant.” And, of course, the appropriate use of humor is not the equivalent of “hubris”. Indeed, anyone who claimed that they failed to understand your disclaimer should be (if you will pardon the pun) laughed out of court.

    “Your honor, I didn’t think the disclaimer was serious, because of all the jokes in it.” -unsophisticated litigant.

    Why tempt fate? Why invite disaster? Hubris, anyone?

    I’m glad you liked my comment about your blog, Stephen.

    Please note that my my weblog is actually called The Legal Ethics Blog and is devoted to all aspects of legal ethics and the law governing lawyers.

    “Legal Ethics + Legal Technology” was a week-long symposium I hosted on my blog in connection with ABA TechShow 2005, which was held in Chicago last week.

    Congratulations, again, on your Baristas blog. I’m sure it has been well received.
