John Shubin Cleans Out His Inbox?

Don't worry, it takes me a while to get through my emails too:
Last week, to her surprise, Miami City Attorney Victoria Méndez received an email from a lawyer representing Fernandez in his quest to build a 425-foot flag pole in Museum Park as a tribute to U.S. veterans. On March 5, Fernandez’s attorney, John Shubin, forwarded an email chain from October in which he submitted a written proposal for what Fernandez calls the Flag of Gratitude.... The last email in that chain was dated Oct. 29.
Actually, five months ain't bad, considering the stiff arm Fernandez got the last time he tried to push this through.

Let's hope this project gets off the ground -- it seems like a win/win for the City (after the appropriate hands are greased).

  1. A giant flagpole is about as effective as slapping a "support our troops" sticker on a car. How about diverting the money for the giant flagpole to organizations that help returning veterans who suffer from depression, PTSD, etc.?

    If you want to see a giant American flag, there's one outside my window at 200 S. Biscayne Blvd.

  2. Or go to a car dealership.

  4. Vets don't need a flagpole. They need jobs and a properly functioning VA

  5. Shumie annoys me. But I love THE REN (a venue)

  6. Great, a giant phallic symbol for godflacker and his boys to dance around on the winter solstice, while dressed like cheerleader flamingos on steroids and meth.

  7. Those guys you refer to contribute to our society more than you ever will. If they want to show some pride and come out if the shadows, more power to em!

    Meth? Steroids? What is this, 1992? Really you must get out more.

    Signed from the doorway of my all night nudist vegan man-ogamy. Did I say vegan? Well only if you don't count the Cuban chorizo.

  9. Is salt okay of you are vegan? Otherwise may be a little bland.

  10. If SW would only write his own blog it would be the biggest hit of the year. Think Apple Watch big.

  11. Empty symbolism

  12. 9:23 -- but that's our favorite way to honor the vets!

  13. How big is Spencer's flag pole?

My Kind of Federal Judge!

Sure we have Scott Rothstein and his lovely Tom James clothier Romina Sifuentes, but Louisiana has ED LA judge G. Thomas Porteous Jr.:
A federal judge from Louisiana who had run up big gambling debts routinely solicited money and gifts from lawyers with cases before his court, Congressional investigators said Tuesday as the House opened impeachment hearings in the judge’s case. The judge, G. Thomas Porteous Jr. of Federal District Court, had more than $150,000 in credit card debt by 2000, mostly for cash advances spent in casinos, investigators said. Judge Porteous’s requests for cash became so frequent that one New Orleans lawyer said he started trying to dodge the judge.“He began to use excuses that he needed it for tuition, he needed it for living expenses,” the lawyer, Robert Creely, told a House Judiciary Committee task force. “I would avoid him until I couldn’t avoid him anymore.”
Mr. Creely said he and his law partner, Jacob Amato, gave Judge Porteous an estimated $20,000 o…

Honoring Richard C. Seavey

I drank a shit-ton of bourbon last night. Enough to float a battleship.

My head hurts. But not as much as my heart.

We lost another lawyer over the weekend. Not someone who will receive facebook accolades and other public claims of friendship and statements that he shaped and changed lives and careers. Just a guy who did the best he could with what he had. Every day. And he did very, very well to be the best person he could be. 
Richard Seavey was a profoundly private person. In his 49 years, he walked through more than his share of trials and tribulations, mostly asking for no help, leaning on no one. 

Richard was a fantastic lawyer. He could try a case. He could "litigate" a case. He could mediate and settle a case. He was nuanced. He bent but never broke. The blustery Miami lawyer never scared him. To the contrary, he found humor in it, studying it like a science project. Richard never got too high or too low. He was good at lawyering, but you got the f…
