Best signature ever

I took a law class last term, and I recently got an email from the prof, which concluded with this line:

Unless expressly stated otherwise, any federal tax advice contained in this
communication (including attachments) is not intended to be used, and cannot
be used, for the purpose of avoiding federal tax penalties.

I would like to know under what circumstances he would expressly state that any information in the communication CAN be used to avoid federal tax penalties. Lawyers, I just don’t get em sometimes.

I also award O’Hare the coveted Quote of the Year award: “Please do not leave your bags unattended at O’Hare International Airport. Please do not leave your bags unattended at any airport.” I have to wonder, while clearly an afterthought, is that based on altruism, or some lawyer worried about a lawsuit? “Ramzi bin-yousef al-jalalabad Hamadi acquitted of blowing up Midway, thought leaving bombs in bag only prohibited at O’Hare based on PA announcement,” the headline in the Tribune will read.
