Attorney Orange?

He is blogging his experience and his blog is entitled 40daysinorange.wordpress.com.

To say that he is turning a few heads in his Lenten pursuit is probably an understatement, particularly for his other clients and those that he encounters out on the street during his off-work hours.

Best of luck to Kent McKeever in his Lenten challenge.
