We're back from the briny sea, tanned and ready to take on the day.
Is there an opening on the Federal Bench? Some comments over the weekend mentioned some Judges. We read Melvia Green's name, and she would be an excellent choice. We read another name, and quite frankly we can't think of a worse Judge in the entire State of Florida. But that is for another day.
The Dolphins march on towards an imperfect season. No team has ever finished the season win less, but our once proud Dolphins seem primed to make a run at it.
You could spend your free time in a lot worse ways then reading the Pulitzer Prize winning book "An Army At Dawn", which details the US Army's initial involvement in WWII: Operation Torch and the invasion of North Africa.
Mondays off or Fridays off? We'd pick Fridays off every time. The craziness of a combined Monday/Tuesday calendar on a Tuesday when the courthouse is dark on Monday is just not worth it. Friday calendar's are lighter and it's easier to absorb the Friday cases on Monday. Plus it's more fun to start the weekend Thursday night.
We really have no idea what's going on in the REGJB, and we think we have rambled enough.
See you in court, eyes and ears open for the latest gossip.
