Headlines from the Bitter Newsroom that blissfully overlooked National Be Kind to Lawyers Day: • Age is just a number…that matters.  You can quote Jay-Z feat. Mr. Hudson all you want (and if you’re old, you won’t get that reference), but none of us are Forever Young.  And Ashby Jones hits us square between the cataracts eyes today with two …
