Today is Constitution Day!


Grumble grumble yet another "Hallmark holiday" -- pop quiz hotshot!

Better yet, go to the Freedom Tower to hear Mike Higer read every word of the Constitution backwards (just like a good Beatles record!).

Turns out Ben Franklin was the Walrus.

The warm up act ain't bad either -- Lichter acting out the Articles of Confederation.

(This time David, use your "Opera Voice"!)

In other news, what exactly is wrong with Marco Rubio?
What: The Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association, along with a number of other organizations, including the NAACP, Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association, and the Haitian Lawyers Association, will host a press conference addressing the delays in the confirmation process of Judges Brian Davis and William Thomas, who were nominated by President Barack Obama for the United States District Courts for the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida, respectively.

When:Wednesday, September 18, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.

Where: Near the Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. United States District Courthouse (at the corner of SW 3rd Street and NW 1st Avenue).

Why: The nominations of Judges Davis and Thomas have been pending for over 500 and 300 days, respectively. The Wilkie D. Ferguson, Jr. Bar Association, along with other organizations, will urge Senator Marco Rubio to return his blue slips for Judges Brian Davis and William Thomas, which will formally start the confirmation process. Alternatively, the Ferguson Bar encourages Senator Rubio to explain the basis for the delay in submitting his blue slips for these nominees. Finally, if Senator Rubio does not act within a reasonable time, the Ferguson Bar requests that the Senate Judiciary Committee moves forward with the confirmation process in the absence of Senator Rubio's blue slips.
See?  You can read the Constitution all day


Or you can give it real meaning.

Ok, we can't leave on that disturbing image -- I prefer this one:

    Sorry, guess your question was rhetorical.

  11. My parents came from Cuba, to give me a better life.

    Instead, I've done nothing and skated by.

    I'm a fraud.
