Picks of the Month: Required Bankruptcy Reading for September 2007

As everyone watching this year's entertaining (and sleep-depriving) Beijing Olympics knows, records are made to be broken.  Blogging records are no exception, with my latest post on Judge Markell's bombshell ruling nearly, but not quite, breaking with 1,482 page views this blog's two-day record of 1,519 page views from April 2006 (featuring BAPCPA-Guru Cathy Vance's roundup of BAPCPA's "terrible two's").  Cathy's post, too, holds the single-day "Ruthian" record of 1,074 page views.  Thanks to all for tuning in and continuing to inspire me to blog!

With the weekend upon us, here's another in the picks of the month series, this one covering September 2007.  Special thanks to the firm's phenomenal interns, 3L-Jamie Johnson and Barnard-bound Marie Whittaker, for their help in assembling this post.
