THEY SAY IT NEVER RAINS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

I like summer, but I don't like sweating. 

I like fall the best, which makes living in South Florida difficult. 

I like watching golf on television more than I like playing golf. Golf is too sedentary. 

There is nothing better for reading than a Kindle. I love books. I love book stores. But my Kindle is indispensable. 

There is a timeless beauty to a well played baseball game. The ebb and flow and strategy of a close game is uniquely American. 

The Dolphins will disappoint again this season. 

The news that increased consumption of fish oil increases your risk for prostate cancer has me flummoxed. 

But the secret to good cardiovascular health, besides daily exercise, is consuming garlic supplements. Trust me on that. 

I am not as excited with Miami's dinning scene as others. In fact, I'm downright bored with it. 

The more television channels there are, the less I watch T.V. 

Miami needs a vibrant independent film scene. That would be a rising tide that would lift all boats.  A few more independent bookstores would be nice as well. 

Every time I take a case out of town, I regret it. 

I am obsessed with England, Ireland, Scotland. 

I KNOW that I shall meet my fate 
Somewhere among the clouds above; 
Those that I fight I do not hate 
Those that I guard I do not love; 
My country is Kiltartan Cross,        
My countrymen Kiltartan’s poor, 
No likely end could bring them loss 
Or leave them happier than before. 
Nor law, nor duty bade me fight, 
Nor public man, nor cheering crowds, 
A lonely impulse of delight 
Drove to this tumult in the clouds; 
I balanced all, brought all to mind, 
The years to come seemed waste of breath, 
A waste of breath the years behind  
In balance with this life, this death.



An Irish Airman Foresees His Death, Yeats.

i wonder if rumpole does not have many black readers and if he does, why no commentary on the martin case. you would think at the very least american minority would have spoken out.

what a great win for mark omare. truly the best win by a criminal lawyer in many moons. and to think he is in the running at the british open this week. what cant this guy do?

Golf is not about exercise. It is about gambling, drinking, smoking cigars, and gossiping. Oh, and getting away from your wife or girlfriend for 4 hours. All worthwhile endeavors

Hey, I'm new to the courthouse from up north. Getting ready for football season and is there "a guy" for the courthouse who handles that stuff?

7:35- You obviously have just started reading the blog. We had well praised commentary in the aftermath of the verdict.

There's a few guys who make book around the REGJB. You just gotta find one.

-1 or even. Poulter had quite a run, eh?

Poulter just threw up a 67 for even for the tournament. Right now, that's the number.

In a recent football game between Ireland and Germany the Irish fans could be heard singing, "We hate the English more than you do."
