Stonemason to Attorney Ratios
I remember reading somewhere that the stone mason to attorney ratio is a good indicator of a town’s health and general well-being. By checking the local yellow pages, you can get a good feel for a town’s atmosphere. I parlayed this info into one of my early columns and soonafter received some jovial feedback.
I disremember who said this, but they remarked, “Gee, those stonemasons must be getting into an awful lot of trouble for a town to require so many lawyers.”
