GOOD MORNING. It's 56 degrees in Miami at 6:00 AM.
It's Black Friday. CNBC reports that there are lines around the block at Best Buys and Toys R Us in New Jersey and across the nation.
Query: If there are great deals today, and it is a slow shopping season, won't there be better deals next week and next month?
Miami Super Lawyer Bill Matthewman sent to us his nomination for the Sgt. Schultz
"I know NOTHING, I see NOTHNG" award. He nominated the DOJ attorney who told Judge Cooke that the section of the money laundering statute that exempted attorneys from being prosecuted had "no meaning" and that it did not apply to Ben Kuehne's prosecution for money laundering for accepting and approving attorneys fees.
This one is a no-brainer ( which is an apt phrase when speaking of DOJ laywers) and that prosecutor is the hands down winner this month.
By the way, Bill's won a couple of big cases recently that we neglected to mention, including one North of the Border where in total contravention to their religion, the prosecutors nolle prossed the case the Friday before the trial.
Dolphins Linebacker Joey Porter has apologized to his teammates and coach for not coming off the field at the end of last Sunday's Patriots game although coach Sparano ordered him off a few times. Isn't this the reason the Fins paid Porter 20 million? To fire up the team?
We lost our under pick in the Lions debacle, but called it correct that the Eagles (pronounced "iggles" in certain parts of Western Pennsylvania) would bounce back and beat the Cardinals by more than 3. We finished the day down 5 (the vig) and head into the week 654 Turkeys in the black.
See You Monday, rested and ready to go.
