We get to the Justice Building today and only one of three elevators are working.
Of course we have to go to the ninth floor, which is pretty much shut down because of the budget cuts. One clerk -twenty four windows, no waiting. HA!
The J...E....T.....S JETS JETS JETS play the Patsies tonight in New England for a Thursday night football game. The Patsies are 3.5 favourites. We are rooting for the Jets, and we recommend the over 40 for 150 Favres. Our total wager will include 50 on the JETS +3.5, but we admit that is with our heart and not our head.
J...E....T...S FAVRE FAVRE FAVRE!!!!
Update- the game was way over and the Jets won for +200 for the night. We entered Thursday night +834, and head into the weekend over the thousand mark for the first time" +1034.
A quick dose of the law: Always view the ME report with skepticism: Here is the NY Times article about a NYC murder case that went kablooey (technical legal term; see Black's Law.) when the Prosecution and the ME admitted that the victim could have died of an overdose of drugs rather than by strangulation.
Rumpole notes: We have very skilled MEs in Miami. But it is also a teaching facility, and many times the autopsy is done by a relatively new medical examiner. These rookies in the past have fallen to our artful cross examination, and the rule of thumb (in all areas of life) is not to trust something just because a doctor says it is so.
Oh, here's something fun to cheer you up and get you in a party mood for the Dolphins game for the weekend:
There is a noxious brown poisonous cloud covering most of Asia. But don't tell your Republican friends, because they will tell you it doesn't really exist. (Isn't it ironic that the satellites that take pictures of global warming were probably developed and paid for out of republican administration military budgets? Then when the satellites show the ice cap melting, the same people that supported the research and money for the satellites, now dispute the indisputable results.)
For the rest of the thinking world that believes in science, here is the Times Article. Don't breathe in Asia. Other than that, it's a great place to visit.
