Thanksgiving lame poetry:

Once upon a time there was a federal

prosecutor named David B. Lat;

He didn’t know that when it came to blogging

the USDOJ’s position was, “You can’t do that.”

In The New Yorker his identity as “Article

III Groupie” he would unveil;

He thought, “My plan for blogging fame and

fortune is too solid to ever fail.”

“UTR” was so popular that many could

not go without a daily dose;

Yet on learning its author was a man

many readers reacted “That’s gross!

Now “UTR” is off-line and David’s future

with the USDOJ is shrouded in mystery;

What good are fame and fortune for writing

a blog that’s been consigned to history?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
