Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada just named a woman to Canada's Supreme Court.
Is it me, or do the Justices all look like Santa Claus? I mean, if you're Canada, and you're closer to the North Pole than the US, do you really want to dress your judges in Red Robes with white trim? Ho Ho Ho. 🎅
I'm going to miss Judge Ortiz. Rumpole reported Saturday that she has left the REGJB. She is such a class act. Always calm. Always knowledgeable and very fair. Rumpole is loath to praise judges, but I am not and Judge Ortiz is a great one.
That new legal movie with Denzel Washington is a hot mess. It has no structure and its discombobulating. Skip it.
Everyone is buzzing about whether or not Cardona will testify. I can't wait and I'll be lurking around the courtroom. And I won't miss closings for sure. But if Cardona testifies, I don't think she will be as easy to cross as people think, even for a great lawyer like Mr. Reid Ruben.
Sometimes I really get into the mood for Italian food and then Miami disappoints. In New York or Chicago or Boston it seems like there's a good place every block or so. But in Miami we have to drive to a Carrabbas or something ridiculous and it stinks. And all of those places on Lincoln Road seem like rip-off joints. I hate walking down the street and being hustled by some woman in way- too-tight revealing clothes to walk into a restaurant. What are they thinking? Are they thinking that guys will eat there because they somehow believe that if they eat their the girl at the door will go out with them? Really?
Here's my analysis on Senator Franken.
The democratic senators think Roy Moore will win in Alabama.
The democratic senators do not want to seat Roy Moore and if he is seated they want to immediately have him investigated and removed.
In order to attack Moore, the democratic senators had to put their house in order and that meant they couldn't have Franken around at all.
So Franken had to resign all because the democrats think Roy Moore will win.
Sad. Franken had his faults but he was a good senator.
I just watched the Ben Bradlee documentary this weekend.
JFK while president had an affair with Bradlee's sister in law and also made a pass at Bradlee's first wife.
Would the same democratic senators who forced Franken out have tried to impeach JFK?
Mary Pinchot Meyer was the woman JFK had an affair with. Her story is fascinating. She was married to a CIA officer. She was a serious artist. There is a JFK love letter to her, written on White House stationary that was kept by Evelyn Lincoln- Kennedy's secretary and auctioned a few years ago for $89,000.00.
Pinchot-Meyer was murdered while she was walking one day. A man was arrested for the murder and tried and found not guilty.
Her story is replete with late night rendezvous' with the President, and powerful CIA officers and an unsolved murder.
I am literally starving myself half the time to make up for the extra calories I am eating at these holiday parties which now seem to be happening every day. I'm not sure it's worth it, but I don't want to deal with the depression of not fitting into my tight jeans.
I am so caught up in this Cardona trial opera but I think it's proper that we all remind ourselves that an innocent little boy was killed and that is the real tragedy here.
Was anyone else offended that Rumpole called me "the chick" in his poll?
LOL- he did it after checking with me because he wanted to see if people would raise a fuss and no one did. 😜
Rumpole is dope. 👍
