Quick headlines from the Bitter Newsroom for fat Val Kilmer’s Fat Tuesday pleasure:

The “mega-firm business model” is feeling serious strain.  The sky and profits are falling all over BigLaw’s creation (Proskauers, Cravath), and some are doing a lawyer dump round two.  But get some perspective already!  [Adam Smith, Esq.]

Who’s the man behind the man?  Madoff couldn’t have gone it alone.  [Bloomberg]

Strippers.  Customers.  Six-foot buffer.  Moral crusade.  Settle out of court.  [MSNBC]
