Shakespeare Had A Point

The much quoted Shakespearean line from 'Henry the VI', "First kill all the lawyers". came to mind with this story. The 23 year old son and 20 year old daughter of an Illinois lawyer sued their mother for "bad mothering".
The $1.5 million suit cited such abuses as sending a birthday card to the son that he did not like, without money in it. Also quibbling with the daughter over the price of formal dresses and calling her to come home from a dance at midnight. The father and two other lawyers represented the poor abused children. Mom's one attorney managed to get the suit dismissed. Maybe they should sue dad for bad representation.

I'm thinking that Christmas will be awkward. The 'kids' need their asses kicked and so does daddy.

I read, recently, that there are more legal gun owners in the US that the total population of most small countries. And still.....

Hey, we're afraid they'll live to sue!

I smell a rat here. I bet that the mother had the deep pockets of an insurance company behind her (or some other money stream that wasn't hers) and if that frivolous lawsuit had gone through they would have all won. All that is but us poor schmucks who pay exorbitant insurance premiums to cover the cost of those stupid suits.

true Story...

Back in 1971 I was in an automobile accident where I was rear ended at a traffic signal. I suffered severe bruising of the lower back. The defendants insurance company settled out of court just before the case was to go to trial in 1972. I was to go to my attorney's office in downtown Chicago to pick up the check the next day when, on the way home from work, I heard the following story on my car radio. It was about my attorney and his partner.


Law Partners
Shot To Dcalh
law partners were found shot to
death Friday in what police
have called an apparent murder-
Police said Kenneth L. Hecht,
50, apparently .shot his partner,
Benjamin Rosengard, 53, and
turned the gun on himself
following a loud quarrel in
Rosengard's private office in a
ninth-floor suite of a La Salle
Street building. Both men were
from Chicago.
Police said secretaries in the
suite reported hearing a loud
argument from behind the
locked door of Rosengard's
office, followed by apparent
When police broke into the
office, they found Rosengard on
the floor behind his desk with a
bullet wound of the forehead.
Hccht's body, with a. bullet
wound of the temple, 'was on
the other side of the desk.
Police said there were
several legal files on Rosengard's
desk, but no immediate
clues to reveal the cause of the
apparent dispute.

So what is my point...

If we arm all the lawyers maybe they will do the job for us.

I looked up "lawyer" in my Webster's Unabridged Dictionary and the #1 meaning was "$#!t" so you may be right, Yogi.

But did you get your check Yogi???

Yes, patty; the courts appointed another law firm to tie off all of my lawyers unfinished business. I had to wait for another 2 weeks but I did get it.
