In case you missed it, check out Matt Driscoll’s profile of Pierce County Prosecuting Attorney Mark Lindquist in the mlindquistlastest Weekly Volcano.

“Rock fan. Novelist. Screenwriter. Dreamboat. Lawyer and prosecutor. Mark Lindquist is a character fit for one of his own books,” Driscoll writes.

Driscoll recounts Lindquist’s rise to literary stardom and gets to hang with a guy who drinks with R.E.M.’s Peter Buck, reviews the latest Nick Hornby novel and has a letter from Kurt Vonnegut hanging in his living room. Reading the story, you wonder who wouldn’t want to be Mark Lindquist. Hell, I’d settle for being Matt Driscoll.
