I received this email from a legal recruiter.

Dear Offa:

I am writing to tell you about a position that recently opened up in Atlanta, GA. The details are as follows:

Litigation Associate: Atlanta, GA, office of this international law firm is seeking a litigation associate with 3-4 years of experience to work specifically on litigation and arbitration matters in the securities industry. Securities industry experience is a plus but is not required. Georgia or Florida bar is preferred.

If this position is something you might be interested in hearing more about, please feel free to contact me at the below number.

One would think that, given the general death of securities and the extensive law firm layoffs, one could find enough securities lawyers laying around on park benches to make blind email marketing unnecessary.

(Appologies to Mr. Coleridge.)
