WE'LL NEVER CALL A POST NEWS AND NOTES

Congrats to REGJB regular Michael Grieco for his election to the Miami Beach City Council (motto" "send us your tall, your thin, your heroin chic Russian models....").

And Congrats to former Assistant PD Keon Hardemon for being elected to the Miami City Commission (motto: "what corruption?")

Thanksgiving is next week, and that heralds the start of the holiday season and the end of three solid months of trial work (September-November). Anyone going to trial over the holidays? 

E-FILING: Good news is ahead. The people responsible for the Gov dot health website have also been hired to get Dade's e-filing up and running.....

What Rumpole is reading: Double Down: Game Change 2012. Everything you wanted to know about the 2012 Election, from Mitt, to Newt, to Ryan and Obama, and a feisty governor in New Jersey who we may not have heard the last of. 

MEOW: Gotta love the fact that Sal Esposito couldn't get out of jury duty in Boston. Sal is a cat. But despite his person informing the court of his feline status, the court denied a request for Sal to be excused. The story is here.  They'll just need a litter box in the jury box....

We're working on a big brief type project, so forgive the paucity of the post. See You In Starbucks, which keeps us going through these long nights at work.

So I finally got this fed clerk hottie out to dinner at Bonefish grille and ordered the Bang-Bang shrimp and she gets up in a huff and storms out. What gives?

Fake Simon Steckle said...

You my friend, are a rank amateur. I never go to the Bang-Bang shrimp first. I keep that in reserve for that boring 4-6th date when nobody is sure what to do.

The state attorney 4pm staff meeting yesterday was a real barnburner and ended in a shouting match and then people leaving and doors slamming. I hear that at the 3pm principals meeting today heads may roll.

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

BREAKING NEWS .....

NUCLEAR OPTION EMPLOYED BY SENATE

Rumpole, I think you'd better explain the significance of this to your readers. The Senate Dems just followed through with their threat to employ the nuclear option and by a vote of 52-48 it passed.

The -hit has just hit the proverbial fan. The D.C. Court of Appeal will now get their three new judges and several other federal courts around the country will finally be getting their open slots filled.

But there will come a time when the shoe is on the other foot. Look out below.

Cap Out .....

What does this mean for Judge Thomas?

Rumpole said...

It means he is measuring the drapes, buying a coffee maker, and fighting with Moreno over his chambers assignments.
