Brunch Links


Yikes, the mercury is dropping again. High of 22 with a low of 19 and some snow. Isthmus beer and cheese fest coming up. Attend and walk home, but more importantly, take some pictures and send them to the Sconz for future Brunch links. Frankly, I don’t think there’s enough beer for brunch here. Ald.

    Attorney is a word that comes to us from the English common law tradition, which used an increasingly deprecated form of French for centuries. As in French and other Romance languages, “Attorney” is the noun and “General” is the adjective. We pluralize the noun; therefore, “Attorneys General” rather than “Attorney Generals.”
