BAH...HUMBUG!

UPDATE: The temperature will dip down tonight into the low 40's and perhaps the high 30's as you move inland away from the ocean. Tomorrow the high will be 60 and the low will be 40. Time to turn on those heaters and dress warmly.

UPDATE: The Governor selected ASA Charlie Johnson as your next County Court Judge. The selection is a good one.

Just to show you all that we're not hard hearted, we pass on this FACDL memo on the
holiday toy drive:

The box for collection of toys for the Champman Center children is now out in front of Judge Colodny's chambers (rm. 322) and is ready, willing, and able to accept your donations. Since the age range of the children at the center is 0-17 we are also accepting gift cards in the amount of $15.00 for Target, Wal-Mart, etc. to be given to the older kids. If you are not able to bring the toy/gift card by the courthouse you can also bring your gift to the Dade County Bar Association office located at 123 NW 1st Avenue Suite 214 between 9:00 am-5:00pm. Finally, just as a reminder to those who plan on attending the FACDL Holiday Party, this year as opposed to charging a fee for the CLE credits and luncheon we are asking that everyone drop off a new toy at the door.

Ho ho ho...

Put a fork in the Fins, they're done this year. Go J...E...T...S....tonight.


David O is all atwitter at the 9th Circuit televising oral arguments today. Check it out.

Dandy Don Meridith has passed on.

See You In Court.

Rump,

I was not aware of other people in the REGJB comming down with all types of cancer. It could be very well that this building is a cancer cluster of sorts. YOU, WE, FACDL, the Dade County Bar needs to do something. We must get inspectors in there and get them in there pronto. If it wasn't bad enough that our clients are trying to kills us, the stress is killing us and now the God Damn building is killing us.

How about a hearty congratulations to our newest County Court Judge, Charlie Johnson!

david O is jerking himself into a frenzy at the thought of being on tv. While he is Fed Ct Snob, he desperately wants to be on tv and this is the first step toward one day his being able to post his brilliance on his website

Congrats Charlie Johnson!!!!! Another great ASA leaves the office. What's the rumor on the promotion freeze? What's going in in that office?

Very scary how good the Pats and Tom Brady are looking. They will undoubtedly have the Number One seed, need only two home wins in January to return to the SB, and they are doing this with the youngest defense in the entire NFL.

Only fun part of watching that game tonight was seeing the Jets get their butts kicked.

Agree that Charlie's appointment is a good one. So how did he get it? These things are usually politically motivated. Was Charlie chosen simply because he was an honest, hard working prosecutor with a good reputation for fairness?

Lot 26 said...

I'm going to start issuing a peel and stick Citizen's Parking Citation to all these cops in Lot 26. Miami Parking System won't return calls.

Maybe if the cops get one of those stuck to their window they will think twice about parking there.

You think I'm kidding? I'm not.

Cops should not park free in a private lot where we pay 90 bucks a month to park in. Why do they get to break the law while every other car that parks there is towed instantly? I guess if you're a cop you get to break the law

I read this from the previous comments:

10:15 a.m., in addition to judges, there have been lots of other courthouse employees (many of them young) who have died of unusual cancers in the Metro Justice Building. Ask around the clerk's office and they'll tell you. Maybe it's time to do an epidemiological and environmental study of the building to see what's going on.


Rumpole what must we do to get you to expose this deadly working place! Who must die next before you speak up?

Mate, have you no know will to fight those at County hall? Be gone if not for the will to help those at the REGJB.

I agree, why no major news report by DBR or the Herald.

Rump,
Judge Pineiro had a stroke last night and is in the hospital. No word yet on his condition. Just thought you should let the legal community know so we can keep him in our thoughts. You don't need to print this post, you can put your own words to it.

A concerned lawyer

Say what you want. The Patriots put a clinic last night on preparation and execution. They did it with offensive players that look like they are on BYU
