Happy Birthday, Paul

Today is Paul Horwitz's birthday.  As his wife Kelly correctly observed on FB: "He truly is an inspiration. I don't know anyone who lives with his degree of chronic pain with such grace and humor. He's overcome all that to become a fabulous father, prolific author and wonderful husband."

Here at Prawfs, we think he's also a pretty shrewd and funny observer of the legal scene too.

We are all very grateful. Happy birthday, dear Paul!

What's with the "tution" and "foots"?

Thanks, Orin, but let's not get out of hand.

Paul, I hope you have a birthday that is thoughtful, balanced, and although not without its faults, on the whole, happy.

That's very kind of you, and on a personal level I appreciate it! But I have to hasten to add that there are many others who deal with worse more gracefully, and with fewer resources. Leaving aside caricatures about how little professors work, and exaggerations about how hard they work, it's certainly true that this job, among its many, many benefits, is incredibly flexible most of the time, giving one a lot of choices about when to work hard and when not to, and it certainly has been a great boon to me.
