Harvey Dent, also known as Two Face, is a Batman villain but also Gotham City’s district attorney. Wrap your head around that. You may recall that the character was played by Billy Dee Williams in 1989’s Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in the 1995’s lesser sequel Batman Forever, and more recently, Aaron Eckhart in 2008’s excellent The Dark Knight. Above you can see him through in his office on the cover of Two-Face: Year One, published not so long ago in 2008. What does it say about Gotham City that one of Batman’s fiercest foes is also the city’s chief prosecutor? You’d think the Gotham City Bar Association would have taken some sort of action against Mr. Dent by now, no?
Michael Wells, Jr. of the NC Law Blog advises us of the “10 Things You Should Know About The Law and Social Media.” No mention of Friendster, though. Now, compare that list to “The Seven Sins of Social Media” by Josh Camson over at Lawyerist. There sure are a lot of lists out there about lawyers using social media. Our thoughts? Be yourself to keep things interesting and follow our profession’s ethical rules just like you would in any other endeavor. The rest should come naturally. But maybe someday we’ll make a list, too.

Yes, in case you’re wondering, we here at Abnormal Use did feel the earthquake at our home office here in Greenville, South Carolina. Apparently, at least some folks in our Columbia and Charlotte offices also felt some type of minor tremor. It’s a bit disconcerting to feel one’s building vibrating, even slightly, when one finds him or herself on the 14th floor of that building. Yikes.
