When All Else Fails, Pray!

That's about all that is left, according to Chief Justice Canady:
Canady also described the relationship between courts and children, saying, “The needs are just overwhelming, and we see tragedy on a recurring basis.”

In Fiscal Year 2009-10, he said, there were 9,380 new dependency petitions filed, 2,543 new terminations of parental rights filed and 57,605 new juvenile delinquency petitions filed; there were also 58,835 new domestic violence filings. As of February 2011, there were 18,327 children in foster care and relative placements in Florida.

“Those numbers represent children whose lives are affected by what happens in court, children whose lives may be moved along in the right direction or moved drastically in the wrong direction because of decisions that are made in the courts,” Canady said.

The former state representative, U.S. Congressman and general counsel to Gov. Jeb Bush is a rare public official with experience in all three branches of government.

“For those of you who pray,” he said, “pray for the judiciary.”
Added Canady, "and for those of you who are into crystals, divining sticks, or voodoo, go for it.  If you think the CIA has implanted a microchip into your teeth, please ask them for help.  To my friends who have ever toyed with the notion of self-immolation, I don't want to tell you what to do, but let's just say at this point we'll take all the help we can get."

Not sure if I should be praying to Baby/Christmas Jesus or Grownup/Easter Jesus or Teenage Jesus? Which Jesus do you use to save a J.A.?

“Dear Tiny Jesus, in your golden fleece diapers with your tiny, little fat balled up fists, I heard they might scale back motion calendar to only Tuesday now, and I’d just like to say that sucks. When am I going to have my 5 minute disputes heard when I can’t agree on the location for a deposition? Please, Dear Baby Jesus, I also heard that Circuit Judges who willingly ran for that $145K/year position despite having the future opportunity to work at a large firm making twice that much out of the box might have to take unpaid leave. Coupled with their 7-8 hour workdays, and every weekend and anything even resembling a holiday off, I pray that they do not increase their aversion to labor. Also, it doesn’t seem fair Jesus for all them Jewish judges to suffer here on earth with the judicial furloughs and whatnot, when they’re all going to burn in the firey depths of hell one day because they didn’t accept you as their Lord and Savior and renounce their Jewishism. Finally, I’d also like to thank you for my red hot smokin assistant, who is a stone cold fox, who if you would rate her ass on 100 it would easily be a 94.”
