"I didn’t think I was older until I went into an Abercrombie & Fitch and they looked at me like I was walking through a playground with my cock in my hand." ~ Greg Giraldo, very smart, very funny & tragically under-appreciated
"Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know." ~ Ernest Hemingway, bought the gun he used to kill himself at an Abercrombie & Fitch before it was a gay nightclub
Yeah I bet you weren't expecting that...But consider this news as it relates to what you want out of your life, plucky Zero Lemmings and Current Prisoners of the Law School Industrial Complex (especially you lower tiers).
El Grego was actually a Harvard Law Alum back before the Great Purging of the Great Recession at BigLaw and went to work for the renown Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Fllom LLP (sounds a lot like Wolfram Hart from the tv show Angel no?). Having literally made it to the very top of the legal world, he found himself wanting and changed careers. Like a lot of other
future suicides ex-attorneys he decided to try his hand at another career (see recent news articles about the same and also comedian Demetri Martin who got out after his first year of Law School--that's a smart one). He also had what could easily be considered a successful career in comedy and it's a shame that he took his own life had an accidental overdose.
HLS grads dying at their own hand is nothing new...in fact I'd be willing to bet it's as strong as a tradition there as the summer associateship.
Till Next Time!!! Duck and weave and watch out for accidentally ingesting a fatal dose of pills!!!!...That you have to consciously put in your mouth and swallow...accidentally...(seriously though RIP Greg).
