About Me

I'm a lawyer primarily representing clients who are being sued. I am a retired Army Judge Advocate. Nothing I post here, including any comments about legal topics, should be construed as legal advice or creating an attorney-client relationship.

Dear Democratic campaign fundraisers:

Just because I have contributed to your campaigns in the past does not mean that I want three or four e-mails or texts a day asking for more money. I know how to send more money if I decide to do so. I do not need multiple prompts per day.

One more thing. Please do not ask in e-mails that I verify that I am still a Democrat. That really gets up my nose.

Here endeth the rant.

First try at tacos on the flat top griddle. Very nearly all I had hoped.

The taco rack to hold the tortillas while the building the tacos was just the thing.

It's definitely going into the rotation.

March for Our Lives 2022 in Little Rock.

There is a March for Our Lives 2022 event scheduled for June 11 at the Arkansas State Capitol. We may be in blood red Arkansas but we need to be heard.

Please sign up and show up.

The Carpenters "Bless the Beasts and the Children."

I don't often post in this group but this song came to mind reading posts about this week's mass murder.

Why is Chuckie Todd back on MSNBC at lunchtime?

I thought we were done with him.

I really don't need to hear him talk about how the Democrats are doomed in the midterms.

I bit the bullet and voted in the Arkansas Rethuglican primary.

Arkansas has an open primary and the only election was on the Rethuglican primary. I had a list of people to vote against, starting with Sara (Smokey Eyes) Huckabee Sanders for Governor.

When asked what ballot I wanted I muttered "Republican, God help me." The worker laughed an gave me the ballot.

The Kentucky Derby upset made understandable.

Overhead camera angle for the Kentucky Derby. Watch the jockey guiding the horse through impossible traffic.

Amazing performance by horse and jockey.

The leaked draft opinion does prove one thing. SCOTUS is just another political body.

Putting aside for the moment that released draft strongly suggests that a majority of the Court is prepared to overturn Roe, the draft opinion would not have been released without the OK from a justice - no mere law clerk would take such a step on their own. The only explanation I have is that some member(s) of the Court is hoping to use public opinion to effect the final decision.

My personal opinion - unencumbered by evidence - is that one of the conservative judges is trying to stiffen the resolve of the majority.

The citadel has fallen. Stare decisis is dead. SCOTUS is just another political body in black robes and life tenure.

Infant formula shortage.

My son and daughter-in-law are having trouble finding infant formula.

I know there is none to be found in the local stores and it cannot be ordered on line.

My internet searching reveals a nationwide shortage caused by - wait for it - supply chain issues. I am unclear what is to be done if we cannot feed our infants.

I've had enough of the Infiniti ad with the kid orchestra butchering "Sprach Zarathustra."

Not only is it painful to hear but it is insulting to student musicians.

No kid's orchestra director would make the attempt. Kids that age should be performing "Bill Grogan's Goat." The message seems to be that student musicians are really bad. I was unlikely to ever buy an Infiniti, I'm not into conspicuous consumption, but there is no risk now.
