Storm(Courtesy of AP) When a big storm threatens to delay or cancel your flight, here are some tips: 1. CHECK YOUR STATUS To avoid getting stranded at the airport, check your flight status early and often. Check at least once on the day you're flying and again before heading to the airport. If you need to rebook, do it online. Hold times to speak with airline agents could be hours long. 2. PREPARE Once you're ready to head to the airport, come prepared. Write down your flight number and departure time. Do the same for similar flights. This will make things easier if the airline lets you change your flight for free and you need to rebook with an agent.

Lee & Lee PS Law Talk

Q: Do you think a self-defense claim will be successful at trial? A: I am not sure that there will be a self-defense claim.  I do not know all of the evidence in this case, but there doesn’t appear to be any evidence that Mr. Chen was acting to defend his life or the life of someone else when he killed his victims, one of whom was his toddler son.  Self-defense requires evidence of an imminent threat of serious harm/death – I am not aware of such evidence in this case.  Even if he could show he had to defend himself against his adult lover, how can he show this with respect to his three-year old son?

Letting the Dream Die - Chicken Curry SaladLangston Hughes wrote, “Hold fast to dreams for if dreams die life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.” This was one of my favorite poems when I was in high school, but now I’m not so sure that I believe it anymore. I’m starting to think that sometimes you have to let dreams die. Only then will there be room for new dreams. The new dreams might not necessarily be better than the old ones; rather, they’re a more likely or more attainable version. I’ve held onto the same dream of my life for so long that I actually feel a bit like the broken-winged bird that cannot fly. I can’t envision any other possible scenario for my life, yet I don’t seem able to get there no matter how hard I try. The more I struggle, the more painful it becomes.
