Famous author, Robert James Waller, best known for the romantic novel “The Bridges of Madison County,” has died.
He passed away in Texas either Thursday or Friday. According to his literary agency, Waller died at the age of 77 a few days back after battling a strange illness. In his lifetime, he wrote several books but “Bridges of Madison County” was his most popular, spending over 3 years on the New York Times bestseller list.
Is Going to Law School Worth It Anymore?A 2015 study by the Access Group Center for Research and Policy Analysis found that only one in five people who graduated from law school between 2010 and 2015 strongly agreed that obtaining a law degree was worth the cost. Perhaps more troubling, only 38% of law school graduates, down from 56% between 2000 and 2009, described themselves as having a good job after graduation. With four out of five recent law school graduates at least somewhat regretting their decision to attend – and six out of 10 failing to find a good job after graduating – it makes sense to examine whether going to law school is still worth it in 2017. Keeping in mind the high tuition costs, interest rates and potential salaries, another good metric to consider would be its ROI (return on investment), calculated as its salary-to-debt ratio in a new study by online lender SoFi.

The novel was later turned into a Clint Eastwood-directed film starring Meryl Streep that grossed millions and earned Meryl her 10th Oscar nomination. Some of other Waller’s notable works include “Puerto Vallarta Squeeze”, ‘A Thousand Country Roads’ and “Slow Waltz in Cedar Bend.”
