    While Lat’s away, we all can play!

    A few of the more-alert readers here have noticed there’s an unusual name in the byline, today. Let me introduce myself. My nom de plume is Piercie Shafton, an evocative moniker for a guest-editor of Above the Law, I’m sure you’ll agree. Don’t bother to Google me. I’m not that Piercie Shafton: “the meddling tool […]
