We saw a story about a model denied entry into the US, and wrote a little humorous (we thought) post about a fictitious super hero named ASADJ. Of course we were referring to ASA Grieco. It was written in the spirit of humor. What we did not know was that for personal reasons Mr. Grieco decided to resign today.
We do not know why Mr. Grieco resigned. We know he was not fired.
It surely must have been a tough decision and these are tough times for him.
If you have read our posts, then you must realize that what we are not about is kicking people when they are down. Making fun of a Judge with an oversized ego (and caseload to match) no problem.
But making fun of people who are experiencing tough times is not what we like to do.
Mr. Grieco has been widely discussed on this blog. While working as an ASA and keeping up the persona of DJEsq., he was fair game for being ribbed. And any misguided statement he may have but on his MYSPACE page was also fair game for commentary. And people are free to still comment on the incident, and on his resignation.
But we are not comfortable with our little humorous post at a time like this. So, it’s down, and for those of you who didn’t see it, you are not missing much.

A Muldowny mole just whispered in our ear:

4/19 Oral Arguments
4/28 Date Defense Attorneys said at arguments they would be ready for a ruling... who is dragging feet here???

Because our event is attracting so much attention in and around the REGJB, I hope you don't mind if I post my Press Release on your blog:PRESS RELEASEOn Saturday, April 29, 2006 at 6:00 PM, the Kiwanis Club of Biscayne Bay will be holding their 28th Annual Kiwanis Auction Dinner. The event is being held at the Renaissance Ballrooms, located at 5910 SW 8th Street, Miami, Florida.The event is expected to attract over 400 guests to a spectacular evening including a silent auction, "The Rush Limbaugh Dinner" and a live auction to conclude the evening. Club President Rick Freedman was able to secure Rush Limbaugh to underwrite the dinner with a donation of $40,000. Mr. Limbaugh, currently facing prosecution in West Palm Beach for various crimes relating to his abuse of pain medicine denies any connection to his sudden charitable interests and his case. Furthermore, Mr. Limbaugh, who has no tolerance for illegal aliens, poor people, or people of color, and never met a law or get tough on crime republican politician he didn’t like is suddenly and adamantly against the drug laws of this country. Funny how life works out isn’t it? Karma baby. And if Limbaugh is convicted and sent to prison, then we can soon expect the “Rush Limbaugh Prisoner Rights” dinner next year.
Rumpole notes that you can read Mr. Freedman’s full and original post without the Rush Limbaugh bashing in the comments section. Say what you want about porky, but the Dinner benefits a great charity and everyone should go, make fun of Limbaugh, and spend lots of money.
See You In Court. Jeeze we feel like such a jerk for making fun of Grieco right when he was resigning, but then the Limbaugh thing came in and now we feel better. That jackass has kicked so many people when they were down that not enough bad things can happen to him in our humble opinion. The greeks had a word for it. They called it Hubris and we all know what happened in those Greek tragedies.
