How Cute -- You Found a Typo On the Internet!


Is there anything more ponderous than a self-proclaimed "grammar Nazi" who triumphantly brings to the world's attention minor typographical or grammatical errors in casual, conversational settings?

I pride myself in putting out high quality, carefully edited product in my professional life, and I get down on myself if a typo slips through (life happens!) after it's been filed.

But I'm talking about the frequent commenters on FB, Insti or elsewhere who love to tell everyone how important grammar is to them and gleefully gloat when they've identified a minor errer error in a nonprofessional, more casual environment.

Really, how does that advance the ball?

I saw one just the other day, in a very heartfelt post about the loss of a pet, and some idiot had to post a comment *mysteries.

God I sound like Skip Reming Andy Rooney some other old crank.

I'm gonna try to rebound for the 3d DCA post......

  1. It was my associate who noticed the typo! I swear! You know I don't actually "draft" or "revise" (.2).

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…
