Dude, just post weekly updates. It's not a hard concept, and this way we can be the first to report to ATL when Dallas goes to 190

I don't know any bankers who work 1/2 of big law hours. That's like 35-40 hrs a week.

What do we think about how this will affect tertiary markets with satellite V100 offices?

My guess is not much, if any, at all. But I guess we can hope.
