Bits and Pieces


...At a business meeting, an attorney tells me his one case that made news, two children killed when a driver hit the back of the tractor they were riding. “The fact that my client was intoxicated when he hit them was not relevant,” he earnestly volunteers. “It was a rainy night, the road curved, and the tractor did not have rear reflectors. The tractor driver and his wife later divorced, one of the children was theirs and I think they couldn’t handle being at fault.” I think, there's not enough money in the world...

...I write in a word document and then copy-paste to the blog. I’ve decided that when I’m at 100 pages I will start looking for literary representation to make this sucker (or the content thereof) a book. 78 single-spaced and counting...

...One way to tell if you would whore – how much could you charge? Check out the Provider Price Predictor, which will weight your age, sex, looks and personality to advise you on a fair rate in your area and across America! Get a friend to help you rate yourself, it's a great way to acquire some hurt feelings! Is my face really a 6 or is Power Girl just working from a different generational reference? (It's best you not answer that, Gentle Readers)...

Hmmm. Do you think I could make a living as a whore? Of course, we are all whores of one kind or another, right? It's all about what you're selling, and for how much.

have to agree with la fille, though disagree with pg. she is a punk. pull her pigtails. *grin*

the rate determining engine was hilarious- and its good to know that if i should ever go for the gusto i wouldn't starve, at least. je t'adore, mon ami! la fille jolie

('la fille beau' just doesn't have quite the same flow to it, n'est pas?)

Just had attorney friend over for dinner (the asshole kind of attny who defends cops and prisons at any cost). He just came from court with following report - cop has drunk girl with double Ds do jumping jacks as her sobriety test. She didn't pass but managed almost 50 before she was told to stop. I told friend he was more of a shitbag then cop for getting him off.

It's not that the attorneys get these people off, it's the unequal distribution of the resources. Big companies and institutions can pay to have the best legal talent. If they were the ones who had to use public defenders or work pro se, imagine how different a world it would be.
