More than all that, though, it seems to me that PaperTiger's natural life was 1L year. It fit nicely during that time, serving as both an expressive outlet and a natural transition from life as a newspaper columnist to life as a law student. I very much appreciated everyone who took time to read and interact on topics ranging from law school to Michigan football to politics to the demise of newspapers in general and the Ann Arbor News in particular.
I've left a handful of posts up, either because they're frequently linked to (the Dearing interview) or simply because I liked them, but I've otherwise removed almost all of the PaperTiger content.
Why remove it? Mostly because there's a difference between being a newspaper columnist and being an attorney, a different tone, and PaperTiger represented the previous tone, not the one I'm going forward with.
Is it the end? Probably, but as this last year has taught us, it's hard to predict the future.
