MCDA(Miami Criminal Defense Attorney): What does this mean for me?
Rumpole: Well for starters you won't get called for a hearing on Friday afternoon and then be forced to wait until the end of calendar before your case is called.
MCDA: My client was supposed to have a case in court this week. Now what happens?
Rumpole: It depends. If you were scheduled for a bond hearing, then it will be reset in the "Usual Course for Miami Lawyers" which means the last Friday of the month six months from the day it was previously set.
MCDA: No. My case was for sentencing.
Rumpole: You will be first up Monday morning.
MCDA: I also had a motion to suppress set.
Rumpole (laughing): Seriously, are there any other questions I can answer for you?
MCDA: No I guess you've covered it all.
Rumpole: See you in court. Macs and Galoshes for North Of the Border.
It's 60 cold degrees at 7:00 PM and the temperature is falling.
GM says it needs 18 billion to stay in business. They have 66 Billion in debt!!! 66 Billion!!! How does a company get 66 Billion in debt??? Top execs will take $1.00 in pay in 2009 and they will sell their corporate jet.
Rumpole notes: 1) The execs will still be overpaid. 2) We might need 10-12 million to get by. Congress would surely go for that right? Our car is almost 5 years old.
Saxby Chambliss appears headed for a win tonight in the Georgia senate race. Chambliss, a politician with such little regard for the truth that six years ago he ran ads against the incumbent Max Cleland, who was in a wheelchair as a triple amputee as a result of injuries sustained in Vietnam, comparing him with Osama Bin Laden. Karl Rove (who else) was behind one the most despicable senate races ever. Chambliss is an embarrassment to American politics. Any decent politician would shun him and turn their back on him when he enters the room.
