"Editorial Note: The following manuscript, which was unsolicited, is
not standard Messenger fare. It is about becoming a lawyer, becoming
human, and the elusive goal of becoming both at the same time. We hope
you enjoy it, and we hope it encourages the creative writers among our
own membership to submit their own fictional or non-fictional vignettes
touching on the legal profession."

"Letter From the Editor": "And we have a short story: 'The Visitor,'
by Lawrence Savell. Mr. Savell, who practices law in the Big Apple, had
to remind me that the Messenger published another story of his in 2004.
We’d like not to wait 13 years for the next law-themed (however loosely)
short story, serial, or poem. Day in and day out, we deal with
non-fiction, much of it mundane and almost all of it conflict-ridden.
When we find fiction, we blow it up. Legitimate fiction—as an art
form—helps keep us, as Rocky Balboa would put it, from getting 'mentally
irregular.' Even though the word 'creative' is more often pejorative
than complimentary in our profession (I’ve never understood that), my
gut tells me creative writers are lurking among our membership, just
waiting to bust out of their workaday legal straightjackets."
