FACDL SWEARING IN EVENT SATURDAY NIGHT

 It's the second Saturday in May. How could we have missed this? The NEW (and improved) FACDL board will be sworn in Saturday evening. You can watch the event here on Zoom starting at 6:15 PM.

Meeting ID: 943 189 3869
Passcode: 378486

Kevin Hellman, the foremost proponent of "PDMetrics" (evaluating PDs by the number of depos they take, motions they file, cases they try) will be your New FACDL Miami Chapter President. 

From the leaked copies of speeches for this evening: 

"Mr. Speaker, on Friday evening last I received the commission to form a new administration to be conceived on the broadest possible basis...It must be remembered that we are in the preliminary stages of one of the greatest battles of history...I take up my task with bouyancy and hope and I say to you that I have nothing to offer but blood, toil, tears and sweat. We have before us many long months of struggle and suffering. You ask 'what is our policy'? I say it is to wage war by sea, land and air with all our might and with all the strength  that God can give us. To wage war against a monstrous   tyranny never so vast in the dark and lamentable catalogue of human crime. That is our policy. You ask 'what is our aim'? I can answer with one word. Victory! Victory at all costs. Victory in spite of all terror. Victory however long and how hard the road may be.  For without victory there can be no survival." 

Or words to that effect.

Rumpole, is it true you won the Cushing Left Anterior Descending Artery award?

Rumpole said...

Yes, in 1985. I was the recipient after Dr. Mark Craig who was chief of surgery at St. Eligius in Boston won it the year before.

The finale of St Elsewhere was one of the best episodes of tv I've ever seen.
