It Just Perpetuates Crime
How many times have you read cases where people pay premiums for years and then, when they look to collect on a policy, the insurance companies pull a fast one and deny the claim?  I see it all the time. Funny, then, when I'm reading the paper about that co...

Where is the Justice?
In a perfect world, there would be no droughts, no war, no poverty, and no sin .  In a perfect world, employees would work a full week without complaint and employers would pay better than living wages and a yearly COL that actually reflected the rate of in...

What is it about Hillary?
The other day, news came out that Hillary would not be charged criminally for her mis-management of emails while she was Secretary of State.  This has caused not a little consternation in and around the country and has polarized many in the political world....

Another Wannabe Bride
Being June, I thought I should throw my hat into the ring and post something about love , marriage and babies .  Wait, babies?!? Sure.   First comes marriage, then comes love, then comes baby in a baby carriage . Turns out most people get that backwards. Fo...

The Hardest Word
You ever noticed that when people get caught doing something they shouldn't be doing they always say their sorry?  Alway.  Remember Jimmy Swaggert?   One day he's sitting on top of the evangelical world.  Next day he's doing the tube steak mambo with some h...

In today's news is a story about a homeless couple who received a $20,000 wedding all donated by their community. Despite research showing the more you pay on a wedding, the better chance your union will end in divorce , this community chose to burn  TWENTY...

It makes you wonder, sometimes
Sad the lengths some people will take to get attention. Take the young lady who was recently arrested for smoking meth in front of her baby AND THEN POSTING A PICTURE OF IT ON FACEBOOK!!  I mean, can I get an epic face palm?!?  Either she's bragging or just...

Word of the Month for July 2016: Index
There's rarely a day that someone doesn't surprise me.  Triple homicide with a self defense twist.   Child support with international kidnapping and spousal abuse . A derivative suit with a class action on the side.  A simple DUI that turns into a grand the...

Funny Stuff
Rare is the day that I read the newspaper and not get a chuckle.  Today's chuckle came from the Daily Journal . Seems a law school grad filed a lawsuit against Thomas Jefferson School of Law .  Seems (plaintiff alleged) that the law school inflated 1st year...

Word of the Month for June 2016: Usury
One of the reasons I went to law school was I was tired of seeing little people get beat-up.  OK, OK, I'm not completely all altruistic - I also saw it as a way to make a ton of money.  While it didn't work out that way, I'm still an advocate for the little...

Popularity comes from pleasing man; greatness comes from pleasing God.
Introduction
I am a law Librarian.  I'm also a friend, a knight in shining armor to my wife, and a horsey for my kids.  I don't have a pointy nose, thick black glasses, or a bun in my hair, but I do provide killer reference services to darn near everyone.  I like to garden, bake, BBQ, smoke meat, and would give Bobby Flay a run for his money on my two-burner propane grill.
