We are not referring to the multiple deliveries of the daily paper that we receive.
We are referring to this headline today:
What would end the drought? A hurricane.
Let us randomly throw out a few names: Andrew; Katrina; Rita; Wilma.
We understand Florida is in the midst of a drought. We understand we need rain. What we don't need is some 220 mile per hour storm smashing through Miami, knocking out power for July and August, destroying homes, devastating communities. Not even the prospect of not having to sit and watch certain robed readers labour through 98 page calendars is sufficient for us to wish such a prospect on our community.
In other headlines today, the Herald hoped that all the new draft picks for the dolphins would not injure their knees during the mini-camp; that the surgeon for Dwayne Wade would not make a grievous mistake; and that George Bush would not choke on another pretzel.
Judge Charles Greene:
The comments were running three or four to one against our call for his resignation. Our readers are more forgiving then we are. Let us posit this query: if you represented a client before him, and he ruled against your client, how would you answer your client's belief that Greene did it because he didn't like the way your client looked? There is a reason a Judge is supposed to avoid the appearance of impropriety, not just impropriety itself. It is the reputation of our courts for fairness and justice that we are trying to protect. That reputation is valuable, and Greene has destroyed his ability to ever be viewed as being fair. He needs to go.
Check out our new Judge Greene poll.
See You In Court.
PS. If the Herald does get its wish, lets hope the hurricane doesn't hit during the big federal wing ding in the Keys next weekend. How would we ever get by without our friendly federal friends?
