“Best hits of 2012? Did I hear that right?”
You may be asking yourself that very thing as I kick off this short holiday week with three posts that highlight some of my favorite content from the three past years of Arizona Attorney Magazine.
I had considered hanging a “closed” sign on my blog this week. But then I thought I’d enjoy looking back and spotting some bright spots. And then on this Wednesday—the last day of the year—I’ll round this effort out when I identify some great work from this past year … in case you missed it.
I did something like this back in 2010, and readers told me they enjoyed it (but maybe they were being nice).
In any case, here are my recommendations for 2012 content for your quiet winter evenings:
Turn to our April 2012 coverage of green law offices (for which I am very grateful to attorney Jennifer Mott).
In July/August 2012, we were privileged to run Maureen Kane’s great piece on Justice Michael Ryan. (It is followed by some memories of his then-clerks, which you can read here.)
And if you like history:
- Our November issue had a terrific piece by Anthony Tsontakis titled “The Arizona Senate Suicide Attempt of 1912.”
And our October issue included the fascinating “Justice of the Peace Wells W. Spicer: Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the Tombstone Judge” by Hon. Gerald Williams.
Finally, here is a January 2012 piece I enjoyed reporting and writing myself on the possibilities for sentence reform in Arizona (my work benefited greatly from a Guggenheim Fellowship I won that year that connected me with some very smart sources).
Tomorrow, we turn to 2013.Follow @azatty
