On Abovethelaw.com (ATL), writer Staci Zaretsky's commentary on the weighty issue of fat ladies has received, so far, 52 comments, 91 likes, and 24 tweets. Here you can read it.
But months before this success we readers sensed Zaretsky was the new kind of star power in legal communications. And she was accomplishing that with her own tone. Sure, how she frames content fits in with the iconoclastic personality of ATL. But the voice is hers. I distinctly remember her post on the day she received the notice from the student loan powers that be that she was no longer eligible for the program which restricted monthly payment to 15% of salary. She captured her angst in a way which became palpable to everyone of us who has had a financial surprise. Fortunately, that notice was a mistake. But like all gifted writers she saw the idea for an article in it.
Since I'm not part of the ATL crowd I don't know what emotional role Zaretsky plays among the two males David Lat and Elie Mystal. However, the Baby Boomer in me envisions her a sort of Mary Richards from the "Mary Tyler Moore" show who makes everything be okay.
