The recent news on this is that his retainer fee, the up front money, to handle Don Jr's woes was $50,000

That's a lot of Superslick.

Does anyone know how to pronounce "Futerfas"?



"Cov-fe-fe"?

Apropos to Fox News "lies, lies, lies", I wonder how many of us in our professional lives could get away with such continuous untruthfulness?

I understand there are a bunch of lawyer-rats deserting the Trump ship.

The scuttlebutt is "Nixon didn't go to jail for Watergate but a lot of his lawyers did".

Musicians even trombone players are people some good some bad, I don't see the actions of one Trombone player reflecting badly on the others.  I also realize that everyone, even the guilty, in this country are entitled to a defense and someone has to do the job of defending them.  He's doing his job, and I'm guessing he's probably pretty good at it.

...found online: 

"To be a defense attorney is to be an instrument that reduces the great imbalance that exists in the relationship between the government and the governed. In defending both the guilty and the innocent, the righteous and the profane, defense attorneys are eternally challenging the State to be fairer, more accurate, and more just."

I believe any of us would be grateful for a system that demands a defense for the accused if we should ever find ourselves unfairly accused of a crime.

Search Google for Blackstone's Formulation or Blackstone's Ratio.  Again...you may disagree...until you are unjustly accused...just sayin'

You tend to get the best justice you can afford.

I've played with him.  He's a good player.

Don't forget, Ted Kaczynski the Unabomber, and the Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho were both trombone players.

Does that make it three strikes?

I just spotted this quip from Doug on Ted K at U of M on Ted playing trombone. I wonder if he took lessons from Denis Smith?
Hilarious, in a real morbid way. I spotted Ted's name on a plaque honorarium at the Dept. of Mathematics at the U of M as an outstanding PhD student while attending my daughters graduation party as an actuarial math major. Small world.
