Great fictional lawyers

The ABA Journal has a good piece on the 25 greatest fictional lawyers.  Most are from TV or the silver screen, but some are also from novels that gave rise to the film versions.  The article does a service in highlighting some lesser-known, older novels; it says upfront that it intentionally omitted Atticus Finch from Harper Lee’s “To Kill A Mockingbird” because Finch is such a watershed figure.  After reading the ABA piece, I’m putting John Mortimer’s Rumpole books on my ever-growing and totally unwieldy reading list.

Here’s a link to “Earth From Above,” some amazing aerial landscape photographs by Yann Arthus-Bertrand.  Fascinating and magnificent, good to show or remind children and adults alike of what amazing things there are on this planet.
