YAM Notes: May/June 2008

By Gregory A. Weiss

Bill Haas—Not Your Usual Democrat”: the campaign slogan for Bill’s run for the House of Representatives from the Second District of Missouri. He says in a recent e-mail: “So it would seem I have some time to do what I’d like to do with public service. Rather sooner than later, though, would be my preference. Used to think I might be president. Good luck with that plan. I do have some gifts, God’s gifts as my website says, and trying to find a good place to use them.” For more information see billhaasforcongress.com.

Lansing Palmer recently announced the move of his legal practice to Putney, Twombly, Hall & Hirson LLP, a 140-year-old New York firm with offices in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Florida. As he described the move in a letter to clients and friends: “This is an exciting opportunity to work directly with a full team of trusts-and-estates practitioners, as well as litigators and corporate lawyers, which will enable me to continue and expand my litigation practice, with litigation support and sophisticated estate-planning and trusts-and-estates professionals directly available to my clients.”

Once again the class mini ski reunion in January was a great success. Held this year in Aspen, the event was hosted and organized fantastically by Howie Malory. The snow was epic and so was the fun had by all. The group numbered at least 35 and included skiers of all levels. We skied together for three days and had three terrific dinners together, including dinner at the Malory home in a driving snowstorm. This is really a terrific annual event. Any classmate who has any interest at all in skiing should seriously consider coming next year to Beaver Creek from January 25 to 28.
