JUNE 18, 1940
On the BBC on June 18, 1940, radio's crackled across France with a familiar voice announcing:"This is General Charles De Gaulle" . On June 17, 1940 Vichy France surrendered to nazi Germany. And the very next day, and seventy years ago Friday, General De Gaulle announced the French Resistance. The war was not over. All had not been lost. Viva La France!
Good Saturday Morning, and this is the news you need to enjoy your Father's Day weekend.
More good news: Drinking several cups of tea or coffee (especially tea) appears to lower your risk of heart disease by 33%. The BBC has the info here.
What's in a name?
A lot if you are attorney Jordan Howard Breslaw (Dr. Fine, Dr. Howard, Dr Fine). Palm Beach Circuit Edward Garrison issued an emergency injunction in favor of North Of the Border Judge Mary Rudd Robinson preventing Breslaw from using the name Breslaw on the ballot when h has practiced under the name Jordan and his two children both bear that last name. Apparently genius Jordan thought Breslaw, which was an old family name he had abandoned, would be more favorable to the large number of Jewish voters in Broward. The Daily Pulp has the scoop on this pile of crap here.
As our dear Bard wrote:
What's in a name? that which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet;
So Jordan would, were he not Breslaw call'd, Retain that dear perfection which he owes Without that title. Breslaw, doff thy name, And for that name Breslaw which is no part of thee.....
If he hasn't called you up by now and told you himself, Sharpstein won a big one in Federal Court. Former Dade ASA Karen Gilbert continues her losing streak for the government. Gilbert was one of the AUSAs who imploded in that trial against the doctor David O Markus represented.
And speaking of Markus, he's been watching the Wizard of Oz again, as he accuses us here of creating an illegal, improper, and unethical "straw man" argument regarding his Folie a deux with Justice Scalia. Or is it a Pas de deux?
Can anyone tell us if the REGJB will be closed Friday July 2? We're trying to make reservations on the Vineyard.
