Don't worry about NBS...

...we're still around. If you've ever bothered to read the About NBS page, you'll see that NBS is a lawyer by trade. A litigator, if you want the specifics. And litigators go through periods when they are very, very busy.
Such is one of those times. It is also complicated by the fact that NBS is about to go away for an entire week, and there is a lot to do to make sure the practice doesn't collapse during that time.
[Actually, this is all a lot of hand-wringing, that is unfortunately very typical of lawyers. There is no chance the practice will collapse within a week, thanks to the complicated scheme devised by NBS and his secretary... fax this on Monday, mail this on Tuesday, demand this on Wednesday, etc., etc. The other side will never know NBS is gone!]
At any rate (hourly, contingency, mixed fee), stay tuned for some blogging in the near future. We may even be able to post a little tomorrow, and possibly even from our exotic locale. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: Wouldn't you know it, all of the lawyer cartoons out there (we were planning on putting one with this post) carry threatening language about copyrights. Looks like all the lawyer cartoonists are all lawyers themselves, with big chips on their shoulders, career resentment, and irreverent attitudes. In other words, they're bloggers who can draw. If you truly can't do without some lawyer cartoons, we recommend The New Yorker Book of Lawyer Cartoons.
