University of Baltimore MFA student Michael B. Tager remembers his father’s recommended reading, and vice versa — and invites us to read between the (loving) lines.

Berenstain Bears Go Out For the Team, 1983

I am in his lap, his stubbly cheek against the top of my head, his deep voice patiently reading the childish prose. The Berenstain Bears are all I want him to read, though I have dozens of other children’s books.

Brother and Sister play pee-wee baseball. I relate, though our umpires and coaches don’t wear menacing sunglasses. Brother and Sister also play catch with Father. My father isn’t very good at catch but he plays with me, saying, “Relax,” and “Straighten your elbow.”

Sartorial Baltimoreal: Legal Ease

The phrase “lawyers who lunch” brings to mind pinstripe suits and depositions over the fast-food-catered conference table. But that’s not always the case. Father and son team Bob and Nolan Weltchek dress up only for the courtroom. During a typical workweek, they make time for lunch together, clad in classic denim. Their casual yet stylish look caught our eye, as did the senior partner pop’s long-ish hair…

Bob and Nolan Weltchek

 

Can we take your picture? You must be in the entertainment business? 

Actually we’re lawyers in the same firm.

But your hair is so long and hip for a lawyer!

I’ve worn it long since high school.

And your son here is so clean cut?

We have different styles. I’m more “shoot from the hip.”

My son is more by the book. Plus, I’m older!

Are your wardrobes are completely different? You both have great looks today.

I grew up in New Jersey. I have worked since I was 13 years old. By the time I became successful, I wanted to take a deep breath and smell the roses, and that included buying nice clothes!       

And Nolan?

He has great clothes. Just not as many as I do.

For example?

I may have 100 shirts and he might have 20.

But you worked long and hard for those shirts!

Nolan works hard too. He’s a partner at 28.

Lots of great shirts in his future!
