UPDATE: Latest hurricane forecast below.
You can't go anywhere these days, even your local neighborhood pub for a few cool ones without risking life and limb. Shooting at local club.
The Civil boys have an interesting story about Becker and Poliakoff communicating with employees via podcasts! For you old timers, can you possibly imagine Richard Gerstein doing anything other than calling you in his office if he had something to say? Ditto Janet Reno.
David Markus seems to imply that there was some minor victory for the defense in getting an acquittal on 2 out of 6 charges in the Salesman/Miramar Commissioner corruption case in Fed court in Broward. We say a loss is a loss is a loss- the "victory" was a pyrrhic one at best. If you can't put your arms around your client as you walk out of court past the formally smirking prosecutors and agents, then you haven't won anything.
(for those of you on the bench, you can read the definition of "pyrrhic victory" here. )
NEW HURRICANE FORECAST:
We don't know how you feel about it, but we're getting pretty tired of a bunch of nerdy dweebs in some place called Ft. Collins, Colorado, issuing dire warnings about Miami's imminent destruction sure to take place during the upcoming hurricane season. Last time we checked, and it was admittedly before the last earthquakes hit the west coast, Colorado does not border an ocean.
And yet these "scientists" are constantly issuing warnings that based on some far flung analysis of piscatorial waste products off the coast of the Galapagos islands, that ocean currents will be(choose the following) unseasonably warmer/cooler than usual, and that will (pick your poison) increase/greatly increase/bend over and kiss your sweet ass goodbye increase- the chances of a hurricane destroying all life and property within a hundred miles of the Richard E. Gerstein Courthouse.
