THE PDS HAVE ARRIVED!!
“you dui lawyers are funny.”
Rumpole replies: That’s because they do all their drinking at home and then log on to our humble site. But as we have seen in a previous post, there is a danger to drinking and blogging.
“tidy up retirement? a place for a drunk to get a new start. are you f***ing (edited by Rumpole) joking? that can't be what the office is all about all about these days. i guess times have changed. the current administration has lived of the lorals of the old gaurd for much to long. anyone with a sense of history understands that brummer was never well regarded by the GREATS(n) ie the original ten. he was the only guy who wanted the job back then. and make no mistake about it, a trial is not a word that benny b is comfortable using. the kid should have held out for 500k.rumpole come back to the dark side”
Rumpole Replies: You have been reading Brummer Bummer. Welcome to the site. Better late than never. By the way, in case you haven’t heard, Bush nipped Gore in a close one. As to Brummer, there were two compelling sides to the story. As we have previously said, BHB (someone e mailed us that those were his initials) deserved to get zinged for his conduct. He has also served for many many years producing great lawyers who give indigent clients a great defense. He deserved to have us recognize his accomplishments as well.
There is no “dark side” of Rumpole. We are not out to ruin or maliciously hurt anyone. However, hypocrisy will be outed. Self important dodos can expect to get put through the ringer. What we really seek is a great discussion of the issues of our building.
PS: Did you go to public school with Jason Grey? You can’t spell “laurels” or “guard” but have no problem with spelling “fucking”.
Another Reader, either late to the Blog, or just a very thoughtful old chap, also saw fit to comment on La Affair Du Brummer:
Why is everyone giving Brumm a hard time? Even though he's basically worthless, who else (besides some idiotic 20somethings) would want to deal with a bunch of lazy gov't pissants?
Brummer is an elected public official. He is held to the highest of standards. He fired a PD for working on the other guy’s election and got caught with his hand on the trap door lever. He was sued and we tax payers paid the bill. He has been treated fairly in this arena.
OK. Now we get it. The PD’s have found the Blog!!!! Better late than never we say. Welcome, PDs. And get Mr. Stein to respond to our challenge. What did we write that was incorrect? Mr. Anonymous, who also appears to have signed his name wrote:
I GIVE MY BOSS A BREAK! HE IS A GREAT LEADER WITH SOLOMONIC INSTINCT. PLUS, WERE IT NOT FOR HIM, GREAT LAWYERS SUCH AS , RORY S. , CARLOS M. , C. DAVID WEED , BECKY COX, ETC... WOULD NOT BE WHAT THEY ARE TODAY. THE BEST OF THE BEST...LEAVE BRUMMER ALONE!! WARREN S.
That crash you heard was us falling out of our chair. Could this be the great, wise, respected Warren Schwartz? The Ben Franklin of Felonies? This barely made it past our censors, as we are suspicious it could be someone writing as Mr. Schwartz. The posting was done anonymously. However, hoping against hope, there is joy in Mudville. As the Casey of The Courthouse, a real heavy hitter is reading our blog. We have arrived at last!
