VETERANS COURT KICK-OFF TODAY


New Veterans Court cuts the ribbon TODAY- Friday- Courtroom 4-1 at 11:30. 

Judge Tinkler-Mendez will preside over the new court. 

REGJB Old Timers know that Miami was the First In The Nation to start a Drug Court- trivia- name the late Judge who founded drug court (hint- he was an old motocycle cop before becoming a lawyer). UPDATE- All answers in comments are correct. The great Stanley Goldstein. 

Hundreds of thousands of veterans have returned from two-decades of war, only to find no parades, and not many people who understand their problems. This is a good start. Well done. 

See you in court.

Loved Stan Goldstein. He was a Key Biscayne Motorman in the old days. He started drug court and Hugh Rodham (Hillary's brother) was one of the first PD's in there.

Single Guy Looking For Advice said...

I have a bit of problem and this here blog seems to be filled with older guys who may have some answers. I'm single in my late thirties and I think I'm a good looking guy, have a steady job, a nice condo on the beach and a car.

Last week a couple of my co-workers decided to hit the bar after work. We won a big case and wanted to kick back with a couple of beers when two Goddesses walked in. We're talking all around beauty queens through and through. As my buddies and I were about to approach and ask them if we could buy them a drink, in walked two guys, we're talking the type of guys you would see at Comic-Con or at a Lord Of The Rings film festival. My friends and I are seeing a lot of this, hot looking babes with not so hot looking guys.

Is there some secret playbook these guys have who land these hot women?!
