I know some people call it "law porn," but...

Today, I stepped onto the elevator after picking up my mail, pushed the button for my floor, greeted one of my senior colleagues already in the elevator, and chatted amiably while looking through the half dozen or so glossy brochures that had arrived that day.

"Oh, Penthouse!" said my senior colleague.

Eyes wide with alarm, I did a double take at the glossy four-color magazine in my hand: No, not Penthouse, merely Aspen Publishers Law School Publications 2005. The woman pictured on the cover was wearing a suit and studiously reading a law book.

Was this a witty reference to "law porn," the discreditable practice of barraging faculty in other institutions with glossy institutional self-promotional materials? Kind of racy for this senior colleague.

From the ensuing chit chat, it turns out he was quipping about the fact that my office is on the top floor....

Shows where my mind is(?).

UPDATE: Today (Thursday) I just received my Spring 2005 issue of Washington University in St. Louis alumni magazine!
