He Makes Jury Trials and Border Wars Funny

These letters were written to Journal columnist Bill Haltom. The first is about his March 2008 column, "The Last Tennessee Jury Trial."

Bill, I've enjoyed your TBA columns over the years, but you have outdone yourself this month " a true classic! As a Rule 31 mediator myself (but a trial lawyer for 30 years before becoming a mediator who still hopes to try many more jury cases), I believe myself emminently qualified to confirm the accuracy of which you speak. Best regards.
" Jim MacDonald, Knoxville

And this letter, about Haltom's April column, "The Second Battle of Lookout Mountain":

Bill: We haven't met but I want to let you know how much I enjoy your Tennessee Bar Journal articles. The latest one about the Georgia water issue is hilarious. I almost instinctively turn to your articles first when I get the journal. They are great. Just know that your work is appreciated.
