THE FORCE IS WITH US




“Yota” wrote into the blog:

rumpole: you are in need of therapy beyond what authoring the blog alots. you take yourself too serious. which is a path toward ruination. search yourself old man. and may the force be with you.

Rumpole responds:

1) Careful readers of the blog know that the last thing we do is take ourselves seriously at all. This blog is designed to be fun and insignificant.


2) Lots of people are reading this blog. That means that when some moronic idiot with no guts to leave their name posts an allegation that someone is using crack or someone else is engaging in sex with judges, the people subject of the post are hurt to say the least.

3) The last thing we want to do is be a part of hurting someone, especially when our posts are so fun and uplifting (unless you’re Jeff Swartz, and even then it was done in the spirit of fun.)

4) So because of a few jerks, we now have to approve the comments before they are posted. Comments that say “I hate you Rumpole, you are a horrible riter” will be faithfully posted, because like your post, nothing is funnier to us than when someone tries to criticize us but has misspellings in their misbegotten attacks.

5) Judging by the ol’ blog meter on the wall, readership in our fair blog has not dropped off today.

ps Einstein: Its YODA.

REGJB LEGAL/ELECTION TOPIC

Anyone have an explanation for the fact that one county court judicial race has 137 candidates, and two other circuit court races have one candidate?

Rumpole's conclusion: Its much better to be a county court Judge and work from 10-2 then to be a circuit court judge and have to try all those blasted minimum mandatory cases. Any judges or candidates care to comment?

Finally: We will be endorsing candidates. Candidates who want us to consider their qualifications should send us an email.


See You In Court.

It seems that you are friends with Attorney Miguel De La O, because you started to get iritated when negativity was said about him and very fast. When comments for months have been posted libeling anyone else you did not care.

I know since I suspect you Miguel De La O, or very close friend that this post will not make it to the blog.

MAY THE LAWSUIT BE WITH YOU. (I mean may the force be with you).

Question for you Rumpole, how often are you going to check and approve the new comments? I like getting a good laugh every few hours.

Oh my god! The blog is now a civilized bastion for the free exchange of ideas.You may have restored dignity to this endeavor and rescued it from certain demise.

Rumpole responds: I do mind. I regret those comments ever made it on the blog. I do have a life you know. But now, that can't happen anymore.

Some days we will check the blog every half hour or so as we sit behind our desk avoiding bill collectors. Other days,waiting for certain county court judges to finish their arraignment calendar, we will check it less frequently. Next week, in a federal jurisdiction far far away, we will be unable to check the blog more than once or twice a day as we battle the feds and fight the good fight.

Unless the Herald wants to give us a job writing about the REGJB, the blog will be updated on an irregular basis.

To 6:49, we have never met Mr. De La O. We have never met you. But between the two of you, one is apparently an educated professional, and the other is a professional pro se litigant who sues anyone and everyone at the drop of a hat. This blog is not for personal grudges. It was not the comments about Mr. O that made us change our policy, it was the comments about a judicial candidate using crack and another performing oral sex. But you are so blind to your own personal hatred that the only thing you see and read is about your battle with Mr. De La O.
Sue us? Nothing, and we mean nothing would give us more pleasure than to get you under oath. The cross examination would be worth two months pay. And then you would learn the difference between a well trained trial lawyer and one who plays one in his fantasy.
