BAR RESULTS ARE IN

Football first of course: We ended up week two with a record of 5-3 and plus 625.

No MNF pick but how can you go against the Saints with 10 days to prepare when SF looked as bad as they did and internally they are reported to be in disarray?

We are 2-0 versus Mr. Markus who is 0-1-1, but there is no gloating since we also thought the Cheaters would beat the Jets. Indeed, Mr. Markus locked in an incredible NE+1 and he still lost, so the lesson is: Rex happens. Plus DOM starts his big Fed trial today in Tampa, and the South Florida Lawyers civil guys have all the coverage. Indeed, DOM gets a pass on our contest for next week and beyond as he has more important things to worry about.

Busy REGJB today with the hallway being punctuated by screams of delight by some and frowns by others as apparently the Bar results are in. The title of the post links to the website.

In our day they didn't have websites. In our day you had to dial a number that was continually busy and when it was answered you were transferred to a woman named "Agnes" or her partner "Frank" who were thoroughly annoyed at you for not waiting for the mail and for calling and who were either hard of hearing or pretended to be, and usually asked you to repeat your name several times and would then mutter that they didn't see anything with your name on it before finally saying "...oh ...here it is......"(worst pause of your life...worst than any jury verdict) before saying you passed but they couldn't give you the specific results- as if that mattered.

An informal look by us revealed that in the results we saw, the pass rate was slightly more than 50%.

Congrats to those who passed- welcome to the party. And a ticket to the Irish House on Miami Beach- oh wait- that's not there anymore- for those who didn't. Well, go find some bar to drink at for not passing the bar, and then tomorrow re-open those study guides.

Contracts. Offer. "An offer is a manifestation of willingness to enter into a contract so as to justify those who receive it in concluding that their acceptance is invited and shall conclude ......blah blah blah. "

See you in court where we don't make offers, and we rarely pay consideration.

They should enjoy this day. For this day's sweetness may be surpassed but never matched.

Why do main-street Republicans abdicate their judgment to Sarah Palin and become so easily swayed by her endorsements?

For example, she endorsed Pam Bondi for Floirda Attorney General because they met once at a Washington fund raiser and both have a family member with Down Syndrome. This meeting of the minds was enough to gain her endorsement and turn the election to Pam Bondi. Who is Sarah Palin?

Just because she has a child with Down Syndrome doesn't mean we all have Down Syndrome and that we somehow deserve an Attorney General who will understand our plight.

She doesn't deserve to effect elections in our state in this way. She doesn't live here, doesn't know our local issues like we do and is not necessarily smarter than the average Republican to somehow have the right to dictate elections in our state.

This nation is really in decline and allowing Sarah Palin to dictate your vote is something that we will look back upon and regret.

If you are a Republican and vote with your own mind God bless you. But to allow Palin to dictate your attention to one candidate over another really is sad.

Sarah Palin should not be given the job of King Maker. Frankly, she doesn't deserve it.

Sarah Palin should run for mayor of Dade County and root out corruption like she did in Alaska. Otherwise, she should butt out of our elections.
