I enjoyed "Ballad of the Whiskey Robber". Non fiction, light read, entertaining

Fully remote roles. Anyone else notice smaller companies that don't have offices in high COL cities tend to not pay as well as companies that do have offices in high COL cities. I've had a few HR interviews lately where I thought that, after they revealed what the top of their pay range was. I asked for more than their max each time. Feels bad cause I'm in NYC. That's one of my main concerns with fully remote roles.

Litigation associates— 4th to 6th years— is it billable to review emails? Obviously We have to review emails to know what is going on but sometimes there isn’t an obvious purpose for why we had to review it and sometimes there is no need to respond either. Asking 4th to 6th years because I have a feeling how billable some things are depends on how senior you are and the more senior you are the less billable certain things are. Enlighten me!!
