Steve leads off with his latest Real Estate Update, talking about how to buy or sell a house in the current weird but recovering market. Then, Steve spent last week in New Orleans and discovered that not everything you hear on the news is true about Hurricane Katrina, levies, water and all the politics attached to it. To illustrate the point, Steve interviews Mike Marino, an expert on all things New Orleans. Finally, President Obama has proposed cutting law school from 3 years to 2 years. Since Steve already thinks that about half of the attorneys representing clients should not be attorneys for either competence or ethical reasons, he has a few thoughts on that.
