WHEN WILL IT END?
This was the scene confronting the citizens of Miami as they streamed into our worn down and weary courthouse on Monday on not one, but two floors.
When will it end? It's like voire dire before Judge Tunis (we hear she went a solid month on her current murder case).
Cleveland Browns WR Donte Stallworth has agreed to plead guilty DUI Manslaughter. According to ESPN he will serve "a short jail sentence" followed by lengthy probation. Chris Lyons for the defense in this case.
Are they holding a goodbye party for Souter at the Supreme Court? Will there be a soiree in his chambers with delivery from Papa Johns and Scalia and Ginsberg singing parody songs about Souter's return to the Mountains of New Hampshire?
Or does he just take down his diplomas, pack his name plate and take off? Does he get a little plate to tack on to his license plate identifying him as a retired supreme court judge to help him get out of traffic tickets? Just wondering.
We counted five male judges who were NOT wearing ties in court on Monday. What's sauce for the goose should be sauce for the gander, eh?
There's nothing funny about a demented and ill individual who kills helpless and innocent animals, and we're not going to make any jokes about it.
See you in court. We're the one in the tie.
