What left nothing unsaid was the remarkable "Practice Order" by a sesquipedalian author/robe wearer. We will try and post it next week. The author fails miserably in his attempt to present the order as a coruscant cynosure of proper pre-trial practice. We are left only with a feeble gasconading conglomeration of egomaniacal pablum, remarkable only for its ignorance of the stress and workload of the average prosecutor or assistance public defender.
You see, using big words doesn't make you smart, it just makes your attempt to look smart stupid.
Not that we know anything, but it seems to us the new judges who become good judges make as little a splash as possible when arriving for work for their first few years.
On the other hand, your first motion for a continuance can be made ore tenus, and how nice is that?
Super Bowl this Sunday. As always we have the coin toss all locked up (3-1 last 4 years) as well as your winner. We're not ready to reveal anything yet, except 52nd Street Irwin called us with this tip late Sunday night two weeks ago right after the Steelers won and the first line was set: for about 30 years until his retirement a few years ago, there was one guy who set the initial line on most big games that the books usually followed until they had to adjust it based on the bets they took in. A few minutes after the Steelers won he set the line at Pittsburgh -2. A few minutes later the first Vegas books had the line at Packers -2. What does this tell you? That the public was misreading the game, as the line is always a reflection of the public and not a bookmaker's belief as to who will win the game. Do with that what you will.
Enjoy the weekend. Our last Sunday football post coming up.
