UPDATE: ABA Journal blaws links to our humble blog here.
Tomorrow: Hoolgian Penguins- not even the threat of minimum mandatories slow these artic toughs down.
SDOFB (DOM's Blog) has all the details on the investiture of Judge Adalberto Jordan's investiture as a United States Circuit Court Judge.
We digress a moment to ponder...what if George Herbert Walker Bush (who turned 88 Tuesday) was elected to a second term? Then the pending nomination of Federico Moreno to the 11th Circuit would most certainly have been acted on and Judge Moreno would have been a Circuit Court Judge in 1992. Would he have been the first Hispanic Judge on the US Supreme Court when Bush 43 took office?
"Of all the words of song and pen, the saddest are these: it might have been."
Mr. 8-5 (not "eighty five, but "eight" "five") is now a Miami Dolphin. Whoopee.
You don't see the Giants or the Steelers or the Ravens signing aging players who are more bark than bite. All those teams do is consistently win, year in, year out.
We knew no good would come out of the George Zimmerman case. Now there are hearings examining the immunity/stand your ground law. The police and prosecutors are using this opportunity to bemoan the fact that they are now actually losing (sob, gasp) cases because of the law. Interesting to note that the good ol' boy-Republican law and order types are now being pressed into conflict with the good ol'boy- Republican second amendment "you'll have to pry my gun out of my cold dead hands" types. And in many cases they're one in the same! Politics makes strange bedfellows, especially when you're sleeping with yourself.
File those immunity motions before the pendulum swings back the other way.
See you in court.
