April 13 is National Be Kind To Lawyers Day

Conveniently tucked between April Fool’s Day and Tax Filing Day is the little heralded "National Be Kind to Lawyers Day."

You can participate in a variety of ways.  A few suggestions from the N.B.K.T.L. website:

  • Switch your ring tone to the "dah-dah" sound from NBC’s "Law & Order."
  • If you accidentally say something wrong or inappropriate on this day, just follow it up with the words, "Strike that from the record."  Then continue talking as if nothing happened. 
  • Do some simple repairs around the house with a gavel instead of your trusty hammer.

Here’s to hoping this turns into the next best thing to the Fourth of July, including requisite parades, fireworks, and good friends and family gathered around the backyard barbeque.
