Old rock for the end of summer

It's back to school for most students and educators about now. The end of summer is always bittersweet. We have to let go of summer dreams and life; something that we probably know can't list forever. But still we're wistful and so are Chad & Jeremy. Even after all these years.

But part of us knows that the summer world is not real and the real world is better. We indulge summer fantasy but we look forward to the return of our real lives. At least Gary Lewis and the Playboys did.

It's a complicated bit of reconciliation. What better way to acknowledge that than the Eagles performing "Boys of Summer."

Since I teach at a law school, I thought it proper to offer a anthem for the legal profession. This is the Wallflowers and Jordan Zevon performing Warren Zevon's "Lawyers, Guns and Money." Think of lawyers as the vehicle of redemption.
