Farewell (But Not Goodbye), Malibu

Pepperdine University Logo My wife and I are back in Cincinnati after spending the spring semester at Pepperdine University School of Law.  We had a wonderful time in Malibu and are grateful to Interim Dean Tom Bost and the Pepperdine faculty, staff, and students for making our stay so enjoyable. We especially appreciated the opportunity to live in the Pepperdine home on Broad Beach, which we were delighted to share with a steady stream of Cincinnati visitors (as well as gatherings of Southern California Tax Profs and my students). I am looking forward to rejoining my Cincinnati faculty colleagues for the Fall 2011 semester and teaching Introduction to Law to the incoming 1L class and Federal Income Tax and Federal Estate & Gift Tax to the returning 2Ls and 3Ls, before returning to Pepperdine for the Spring 2012 Semester for my third stint as the D & L Straus Distinguished Visiting Professor of Law.

I suspect that Prof. Caron has second thoughts about moving to California every time that he prepares his state income tax returns and sees how much California takes.

Today's real estate market provides a rare opportunity to move to California without dramatically overpaying for a house. Anybody thinking of such a move should do it now or prepare to regret not moving.

Hotel California

"Last thing I remember, I was
Running for the door
I had to find the passage back
To the place I was before
’relax,’ said the night man,
We are programmed to receive.
You can checkout any time you like,
But you can never leave!"

Professor Paul L. Caron,

Just move to California already. This is the best advice you will ever get from your comments section. It is obvious Pepperdine and USD want you as part of their faculty, and I am sure Chapman would love to have you as well. (All three of those law schools have great tax programs and I am sure they would overpay you to get you to move). Life is way too short to be spending any amount of time living in Cincinnati. (No offense, Cincinnati.)

Your friend,

Lt. Dangle

Granted, you're a virtuous person, but are you sure you're not enjoying this life just a little bit too much . . .?
