Remembering Law and Letters

My first blogging experience was as a guest blogger with the Law and Letters blog by  Belle Lettre.  Belle was an aspiring law professor with a scholarly focus on employment law.  I discovered her blog through a link from PrawfsBlawg.  We struck up a correspondence, which lead to my short stint on her site.  I posted under the pseudonym Zorba after Zorba the Greek, which was an inside joke between us based on one of her posts.  The pseudonym was more of an online persona than any concern with what I was writing.  It was a lot of fun.    

My favorite post was a commentary on working with non-lawyers.  I found that many of the programs I supported at the FAA were comprised of individuals with no connection to the legal profession.  They tended to view lawyers as popularized on television or books.  Whenever I breached the stereotype, I'd receive comments like, "You're the first lawyer I ever liked."  

It is nice to come full circle in a manner of speaking with PrawfsBlawg.

I was a big fan of Law & Letters as well, and also had the good fortune of getting to know Belle Lettre. But as best I can tell, she's fallen off the face of the earth. You don't happen to know what she's been up to recently?
