Court Orders Counsel in Removal Proceedings for Mentally Disabled Immigrants: "The L.A. Times reports on a potentially cutting edge immigration case. A U.S. district court has ruled that two mentally disabled immigrants must be given lawyers in removal proceedings. This is one of the few times that a court has ordered representation for an individual in removal proceedings."

More support for immigration law clinics: "The Wall Street Journal reports on a very nice holiday gift to Benjam N. Cardozo School of Law. Kathy Greenberg, a public-interest lawyer, is giving $500,000 to the Law School to support the law school's immigration law clinic."

“I’ve never seen compassion as an abstract noun. If you accept that we’re all composed largely of other people we’ve known, then compassion becomes a form of self-love.” Source.

Yesterday my scheduled training was 4 mi run and a 30 min swim - however, since it was New Year's Day the Y was closed. I decided to switch yesterday's and today's workouts (so I did a 6 mi run on Saturday and today will do the 4 mi sprint interval run and a 30 min swim). I think this sort of flexibility with the plan is inevitable, and acceptable, as long as I still get all the work outs done.
