Esquire, or just Esq., is seen on (just some, not all) envelopes sent to
both male and female lawyers in this part of the country; ditto inside
addresses. I doubt that this is a regionalism. But no one would think of
calling someone "Squire Popik" or "Squire Murphy."
And, as probably everywhere, there's some klutz attorney in Lake Oswego
(Oregon) whose stationery proudly proclaims "(name deleted), A.B.D." Maybe
this note is the tickler I need to report him to the governing board of
the state bar... But maybe he intends that to stand for A Big Dunderhead.
