A Criminal Waste of Space I think I may have underestimated the Pepsi Cola people. This would, after all, be an easy thing to do. About all we see of Pepsi is that red-white-and-blue beachball logo, and it's hard to take them seriously as an evil empire when all they seem to want us to do is join the Pepsi generation and think young. Frankly, I think we've long since passed the point of diminishing returns on getting me to think young, and I doubt I would be successful if I tried somehow to switch generations, so I'm afraid I haven't paid them a lot of attention. Too bad. Turns out they are some kind of corporate Hannibal Lecter and I've fallen right into their evil clutches. A Criminal Waste of Space

Well, as we get nearer and nearer to the real Opening Day in Cincinnati, it's probably about time we took a little time to look at the prospects of our beloved Houston Disastros. The club is coming off an unbelievable three-year run of 100+ losses and looking to make it four-in-a-row. But where to begin? First we have Jim Crane dealing with the grease fire that is the sports network the Astros set up with the Rockets and Comcast. The teams got together to create their own regional sports network because they thought the rights fees Fox was paying wasn't what the market would bear. The Defense Rests The Defense Rests

Probable Cause Probable Cause In the years since I became a lawyer, there are a few things I’ve never really gotten used to. One of them is how it is that people who hire me will almost always have made some kind of statement to the police; usually a statement that harms them in some way, and makes their case more difficult to defend. Now the average person out there might be thinking, “Yeah, so what? I’m glad criminals don’t know better. I don’t want people getting off on a ‘technicality’ because they exercised their right to remain silent.”
So wrote Thomas Jefferson in 1774, foreshadowing his more famous quote about the “inherent and inalienable rights” of men, in the Declaration of Independence. To me, what Jefferson meant by that is that we, as humans and citizens of a great free democracy have certain inherent rights that are ours by the very nature of our existence and these rights are not dependent upon the charity of ministers, politicians and judges. Yet, for the most part, the realm of criminal law has continually drifted away from this Jeffersonian concept of “self-executing” rights and toward a more passive, dormant view of individual liberties and freedoms that need to be invoked to be awakened into performing their duties as our guardians.

Defending Those People Defending Those People From the ABA's recently e-mailed newsletter. Besides the books by Dickens, Harper Lee and Anthonly Lewis, I've read the Dali Lama's book. I highly recommend them and look forward to making time to read some of these: Nasty People: How to Stop Being Hurt by Them Without Becoming One of Them by Jay Carter.

Law News Now In December 2012, Emily Sue Falkenstein of Renton, Wash., drove into a marked crosswalk where wheelchair-bound Gregory Ramirez, 48, was crossing with his 6-year-old niece in his lap. The crash broke his leg and his wheelchair, and it left the girl with bruises and scrapes, according to court papers. The responding officer said Falkenstein's car smelled strongly of marijuana, but Falkenstein refused to take a blood test voluntarily.
