Today is a travel day (for a case, not for the holidays) so I will blog when the airport has a connection and I'm not sitting on a plane. Anybody trying a case this week?
We used to say that walking into one particular Judge's courtroom was an affirmation of Einstein's special relativity, because time in fact slowed down considerably. You will remember that one of the consequences of special relativity is that the duration of the time interval between two events can be different for individual observers. That Judge has since passed on, so we refrain from mentioning his name. However, while we're on the subject of cosmology, here is an interesting article on dark matter. Dark matter is NOT those items contained in the paragraphs of your client's federal Pre-Sentence Investigation report before the paragraph on the guidelines calculations. Dark matter is that matter that is not visible that may make up a quarter of the universe. The existence of dark matter has yet to be concretely proved, so this article is exciting. (It's amazing the things one finds interesting in an airport at 5am).
See You In Court as soon as I get home.
