A Look Back: “Very, Very Modestly”

My friend Kyle Hendrick from Chattanooga send in a nice comment this morning, referencing a post of over 4 years ago that, quite frankly, had completely slipped my mind.  I looked it up – and here it is:

The President’s daughter Jenna has written a book that she "very, very modestly" hopes will have the influence of  Anne Frank’s The Diary of Anne Frank.

Like Jenna, I too find myself tightly bound by humility.  Her willingness to reveal her hopes despite her extreme modesty  compel me to reveal one of my own hopes:   that this blog will have the influence of the Declaration of Independence.

There.  I said it.  I feel better already.   Many of you plaintiff’s lawyers simply cannot comprehend the burden of  being "very, very modest."  Indeed, I felt extreme anxiety for weeks calling this blog "Dayontorts"  and took this step only after discovering, much to my dismay, the "Humbleontorts" was not available.
