Cocks Not Glocks!



Now here's some open carry I can get behind... er in front of.
A University of Texas at Austin alumna has the latest response to campus carry: dildos.
The protest, organized by Jessica Jin, is called Campus (DILDO) Carry. The protest is scheduled for Aug. 24, 2016, the first day of the 2016 fall semester. It went viral in less than 36 hours with #CocksNotGlocks.
Concealed weapons being allowed in buildings on University of Texas at Austin will take effect on August 1, 2016 — the 50th anniversary of engineering student Charles Whitman's rampage from the campus clocktower in 1966. It was one of the first mass shootings on a school campus in America.
More than 5,000 have RSVP'd to the protest. UT Austin has an enrollment of more than 51,000 students.
Jin told the Houston Chronicle on Monday that she wants the dildos to serve as a "visual representation" of what everyone on campus carrying guns may look like come August.
"I think it has caught on quickly because it resonates with them in a multitude of ways. The gun puns and the humor have been remarkable, but this satirical employment of dildos has also sparked more serious conversations on topics like the perception of safety, the intersection of guns and sexuality, and even campus sexual assault," Jin told the Houston Chronicle on Monday. "Others are simply seeing it as quite a literal fuck you to the people and forces that led us into this divisive nationwide deadlock in the first place. There's a lot of arguing going on, but the consensus is: We're all just trying to not get killed."
All of you who have never seen a John Waters movie should know that a dildo can be just as deadly as a gun in the right hands.

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…
