Spam (In)Justice

September 19th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I was going to post this on my legal blog, but I just couldn’t.  I don’t care how low my standard of review for Probable Cause is:  as ashamed as I am to admit I’m a part of this faux system of justice, this is one rant that just has to go here.  I can’t […]

Civil Rights? Whatever…

April 2nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

I really don’t know how many times I’m going to beat my head against a wall before I just give up and realize that the United States Constitution is dead. And that no one cares.

A Call to Arms

August 30th, 2007 · No Comments

I’m not sure this post is appropriately titled, particularly since at least part of the inspiration for it is an armless woman, Venus de Milo. More accurately, the re-evaluation of the time period in which she was created is the inspiration for this post.

Raping Our Justice System

August 28th, 2007 · No Comments

Rape. It’s a strong, powerful word which evokes a great deal of emotion. Rape itself, of course, is a crime. Even in the United States, we still put people on trial when they are accused of crimes. The purpose of a trial is to decide if they did commit a crime. Until the jury hears […]

Attorney Advertising Woes

August 14th, 2007 · No Comments

Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only attorney out there frustrated with the advertising systems available to us. From talking with other attorneys, I get a sense that I’m not. Yet I can’t figure out why things are as bad as they are, if everyone is as frustrated as me.
