Tax Prof at 50
I was hoping to fly under the radar with this, but I have been outed by some of my blogosphere friends (Adjunct Law Prof Blog, Administrative Law Prof Blog, Antitrust & Competition Policy Blog, Brian Leiter's Law School Reports, Food Law Prof Blog, Health Law Prof Blog, ImmigrationProf Blog, Jack Bog's Blog, Legal Profession Blog, M&A Law Prof Blog, MoneyLaw, Poverty Law Prof Blog, PrawfsBlawg, Reproductive Rights Prof Blog, Roth & Co., Securities Law Prof Blog, TortsProf Blog, White Collar Crime Prof Blog, Workplace Prof Blog):
Today I joined Dan Shaviro in the 50-year old club. Like Dan, "I weigh the same and am in better aerobic shape than when I was a college or law student" -- indeed, I bragged to my wife last night that I am one of the few men who can still fit into his wedding suit, but she reminded me that I am one of the even fewer men that still wears a 22-year old suit!
Today culminates a year of transition for me, as I said farewell to my father and family dog, passed through bittersweet milestones (here and here) with my son (here and here) and daughter (here and here), survived a medical rite of passage for folks my age, and re-committed to Cincinnati with a great new job. As I look out on the other side of 50, It is hard to believe that it was only three years ago that I was a finalist for the coveted "Law Prof Hunk" Award (here and here)!

We toasted you over at Antitrust and Competition Policy blog. However, it seems more appropriate at the Tax Prof Blog to welcome you to the world of being a potential "alte kaker."

Happy (belated) Birthday, Prof. Caron! Your Tax Law class was one of the highlights of law school for me. And congrats on the Law Professor Blogs network. I often refer students to them for current awareness.
