I’ve got two tips and an announcement in this post. First, the announcement.

After eleven years, I’ve decided to stop blogging. In retrospect, it’s past time. I’ll explain why in my last post.

The last post could be my longest ever. I plan to discuss the evolution of my views of Mississippi litigation. I view things a lot differently than I did eleven years ago. I will explore why in the last post.

It will take me a while to organize my thoughts and get it on paper. My goal is to publish the last post on March 2, but I may grant myself and extension.

The two tips are:

  1. install Sanebox email management to gain control over your inbox; and
  2. read the book The Algebra of Happiness by Scott Galloway. It’s my new favorite book and the first paragraph in the first (non-introduction) chapter is the best summary for how life changes between 25 and 45 I’ve ever read. I wish I could have read it when I was 25 or 30.
  • I, for one, will miss your blog. Thank you for your thoughts over the years.

  • Andrew Neely

    Bummer. For us, that is.

  • Larry Primeaux

    Sorry for us readers; sympathy for your worn-out feeling.

  • Macy Hanson

    This is truly an enormous loss for litigators in the state of Mississippi. However, Phillip, you might qualify for sainthood for carrying this on your shoulders for the past decade-plus. Thank you for your efforts, humor, perspective, wit, and insight.

    I am off to buy The Algebra of Happiness now (along with John Morgan’s book; mostly because I want to discover what the “prize” for finishing his book is).

    I cannot wait for your forthcoming Magnum Opus of a post. Adios, amigo mio.

    Will miss reading your blog. Some good recommendations here. Like WordRake. Wonderful program. Use it all the time. Litigation in MS is dying … no longer a slow death anymore. Look forward to reading the final post.
