Last night was the night as the NY Knicks embarrassed the Miami Heat at home, beating them 112-92, and we were there to enjoy every moment of it.
And tonight is the night for the famed PD party. (By invitation only.) Have fun.
Meanwhile, we've been following the extraordinary blog of US software mogul John Mcafee, who has been blogging while on the run from a murder investigation in Belize, which has great diving by the way. Mcafee was arrested in Guatemala Thursday, and became perhaps the first prisoner to blog from jail. We now know that the coffee served by corrections in Guatemala is "excellent."
Many loyal readers have often opined that perhaps it would be nice if we blogged from jail- where they say we belong- but we were happy to cede that honour to another.
Speaking of things we've been accused of, Roy Black advises to "cross examine like a psychopath."
From his blog:
The key traits to psychopathic success are: ruthlessness; intense capacity to focus, excluding all distractions such as fear; powerful reward motivation; a disposition to action; acute ability to read emotions in other people, without being moved by them; charisma; mental resilience; and mindfulness, the ability to live in the present moment. Include in that “the refrigerated heart of a ruthless, glacial predator.” Sounds a lot like a trial lawyer conducting a cross-examination.
Sound like anyone you know?
Have another drink on us tonight. Who won the movie tickets?
Enjoy the weekend.
