“You’re nuts!” That’s what I would say to anyone a year ago who suggested that we would face a global pandemic that would put us in a recession magnitudes greater than 2008 (based on GDP), make all bars and restaurants shut down and cancel professional athletics.

Back in the early 1990s, I was a freshman at Columbia University in New York. Frankly, I wasn’t very interested in the academic part of college at the time.

Representing your own business in small claims cases can be a tough nut to crack. One, you probably don’t know what you’re doing.

The disagreement is on whether or not it’s th…
