My name is Ozzie Maland. You might wonder about my user handle, "tinwhistler."  It is my way of identifying with the narrator in this verse:

Now I am a tin whistle
Through which God blows,
And I wish to God I were a trumpet
-- But why, God only knows.
[Sir J. C. Squire, quoted at p. 238 in What Cheer by David McCord (Coward McKann New York 1945)] 

I was a lawyer in the Chicago area before I moved to San Diego in 1990.
