A reader writes us this:
Have you read Lincoln's Last Trial by Dan Abrams? A transcript was recently found by the family of the murder defendant. It was the case that propelled Lincoln to the presidency and the only known transcript of a Lincoln trial to exist. Lincoln was an expert at bonding with a jury and knowing what not to say. The writer of the transcript was the same man who transcribed the Lincoln Douglas debates.
And Rumpole responds: of course we have. Who do you think runs this blog?
And a reader who wears a robe wrote us a short email complaining about the Lawyer's Bill of Rights and wants to know why lawyers are late, unprepared, disrespectful, texting in court, talking in court, never ready for trial, and other petty complaints.
Why indeed? Perhaps our readers will respond.
The President and Attorney General are separating children from their parents at the boarder and blaming the Truman, Kennedy and Carter administrations.
From Occupied America, where conservative Republicans are all about family- unless the family has darker skin and is from another country- Fight the Power!
