Do You Want To Own A Piece of Lew Freeman?
Two independent facts confirm in my mind that it's great to be a lawyer -- (1) an apparent lawyer is suing Twitter on behalf of Levi Johnston; and (2) Governor Crist appointed Scott Rothstein to be on the 4th DCA Judicial Nominating Commission.
These are end times, peoples.
Speaking of Scott, no one could be more thrilled by the timing and intensity of the media coverage than The Metaphor Man, Lew Freeman.
While everyone has been busy discussing Scott's gadgets, over-the-top luxury items, and a secretive lair right out of an old Bond movie, Lew has been quietly trying to get things straight.
For example, Freeman dismissed the ill-advised tax suit against the U.S. government.
(Probably should not have filed it in the first place).
And Lew's possessions just went on the auction block, including artwork of W.C. Fields, Groucho Marx, Charlie Chaplin, and George Burns.
You can see an inventory list here.
Now say what you want, but there is no question Lew has much better taste than ole' Scotty boy, who needed to own at least seven overpriced watches.
Lew, on the other hand, had framed Caddyshack and Boston Legal posters and a letter from Sam Ervin.
Score one for Lew!
