Welcome to "Meet the Mayor," a segment in which we interview local Foursquare Mayors in
their natural habitats.
Raven Used BooksEd Kammerer
Read any good books
lately?All I read is for my dissertation on law and public policy.
I read a lot of boring law books.
Why would anyone want
to write such a thing?I have no idea. I'm a lawyer, technically, so I went to grad
school so I could teach instead of being a lawyer. That way, I'll be able to
take summers off and read books that aren't about law and public policy. I have
an addiction to books. It's like crack, but healthier.
Books are healthier
than crack?They expand your mind.
So does crack.Yeah, but books are unlikely to kill you unless they land on
anything today?I spent $40 on a mix of classics and science fiction. Let's
leave it at that.
You're embarrassed to
be reading classics and science fiction?They don't embarrass me, it's
just not my usual educated reading. I want people to think I'm smart, you see. It's the lawyer/professor thing. I've
got to make people think I know what I'm talking about at all times. Lawyers go
out of their way to look smart all the time.
