Today, I was doing some Google research on a case I'm working on. It wasn't legal research - I just needed some info on a big construction project that involved our client. Eventually, I started reading some random magazine article on the project. This article was perfect.

It was simple. It was concise. It addresses all of my questions. And, best of all, it was incredibly easy to read.

Unfortunately, it was easy to read for a reason. I was reading an article in a magazine put out by an elementary school. The particular article I was reading was written by a 5th grader.

I think I'm banned from doing Google research for the rest of the day.


  1. Wow. That is really sad and yet, amazing on so many levels.

  2. A clear concise article written by a 5th grader, that is amazing. You should write his or her teacher.
