Your Tuesday Morning Round Up.

Hi kids, big news -- Gwynne Young wins the Florida Bar run off!

Oh I'm kidding, the big news down here, broke by David,  is Gene Stearns convincing Judge Ungaro to grant his 50(b) motion and throw out the jury's verdict against BankAtlantic.

Guess it really was the worst trial Gene's ever seen.

Does this vindicate the overall approach to the litigation by the defendant (which just posted a $22.9 million loss this quarter)?

Hard to say as we're somewhat in uncharted territory, though it's a major concession by the Judge that things could have/would have/should have proceeded differently.

Hey, I just report this stuff!

(I'm joking, he just randomly selected a few books to highlight the average content of the NYT Sunday book reviews.)

I can't believe you wrote that.

Good for you.

Any truth to the rumor that Judge Israel Reyes is resigning?

Hey SFL, there is a internet acronym for that.

BBC is always appreciated.

GB, was that unfair?

Take a look at the books that Garvin focused on:

To be fair, there’s a lot of competition for space in the Times book review. And probably it’s too much to expect Tanenhaus to make space for a review of James Piereson’s fusty Camelot and the Cultural Revolution: How the Assassination of John F. Kennedy Shattered American Liberalism when you’ve got elegant pieces on Toni Bentley’s The Surrender (a ballerina’s encomium to the liberating qualities of sodomy), or Scott Poulson-Bryant’s Hung : A Meditation on the Measure of Black Men in America (self-explanatory) or Jenna Jameson’s How To Make Love Like A Porn Star (even more self-explanatory).

Unfair? You're thinking too much. Do not second guess.

It was not only great, it was spot-on.

My point is, its good to see your diminished self-censorship.

You call him out, and he deserves it.

Garvin is so full of self-loathing and inner tumoil.

THIS is why we all buy tickets. Your prose.

Garvin is too big a puss to come here and respond like a hairy man who writes about BBC.

"Glenn Garvin thinks NYT readers are deviant liberals who love big black c*%k."

Speaking for myself, as a NYT subscriber, he's dead-on right.

Read "Hellhound On His Trail" -great book on Assassination of Martin Luther King. Not a conspiracy book. But you will learn things you never knew about the case, MLK, and James Earl Ray.

10:58, I'm all in favor of a Sunday book review section that focuses exclusively on sodomy-loving ballerinas, porn stars, and well-hung black men, but for some reason I must be getting a different edition than the one Garvin gets every Sunday.
