Skaddenfreude: Evening Open Comment Thread

100 dollar bill Above the Law Above the Law law firm salary legal blog legal tabloid Above the Law.JPGWe’re signing off for the night. It’s almost time for the State of the Union (9PM Eastern time). We won’t be back online until tomorrow morning.
Feel free to offer your thoughts on Biglaw compensation matters in the comments to this post. For ease of reference, here are the associate pay raise announcements that we’ve collected so far:
Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft
Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton
Milbank Tweed Hadley & McCloy
Paul Weiss Rifkind Wharton & Garrison
Sullivan & Cromwell
And, of course, the first mover who deserves credit for this largesse:
Simpson Thacher & Bartlett
Enjoy the State of the Union, everyone. See you tomorrow.
(The Wonkette crew is liveblogging the SOTU. And don’t miss their SOTU Drinking Game, which will make President Bush’s speech twice as fun.)
Update (8:50 PM): A shout-out to the lawyers: Attorney General Alberto Gonzales is the Cabinet official who has been designated NOT to attend the State of the Union, to ensure the continuity of government in the event that disaster strikes on Capitol Hill tonight.
