Las Vegas rocks

I’m in Las Vegas on assignment. The heat index is down, making it more comfortable to walk … The last time I was here, the city felt depressed, I think reflecting the economy. Today, the spirits of the people seem to be "up," the money flowing more loosely and the people again seeking a good time. This, too, seems to be reflecting the spirit of the country. While the feeling seems to be more subdued than before, I sense a degree of optimism not present during my last assignment here.

Since the economics of law firms follows the economics of clients, I suspect that our legal community will reflect more positive results this year, though not yet a break-through. The question becomes whether it will take another decade for the Great Recession to be only a bad memory or whether we will see a real sea change.
