Just as there are doctors who help people who have done bad things, there are lawyers who defend bad people. People do not win fights, lawyers do. Everyone thinks defense lawyers must believe their clients are innocent, but that’s seldom true. Most of the time they are guilty as O.J… yet Trev also got his client off — mostly…

Trev collapsed into the cushy chair and exhaled a long satisfied pillar of smoke from his cigar. And while it formed a cumulus cloud of contentment over his exhausted, shaved head he simply uttered: “Well, I did my job…” When … Continue reading

Old age ain’t for sissies… You don’t stop laughing because you get old; you get old because you stop laughing. And then there is my wrinkled mother who has been wondering: ‘What am I doing here?’ And I told her: That’s the very same question most of us ask in the morning bathroom mirror…

Her question didn’t seem so odd or out of context to me. But it set the other folks surrounding Mom’s hospital bed to second-guessing. You know, stealing side-glances at each other with that suspicious brusque insight. That perhaps my ailing … Continue reading

Oh, you hate your job? There’s a support group for that. It’s called everybody, and they meet at the bar…Yet, if you do a half-assed job, you’re a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind, dumb, stoopid and unhappy…Learn from successes, for if you learn only from mistakes, you learn only errors…

Reality is the leading cause of stress among those in touch with it. Stress wilts everything, including my testosterone — which is so low I am practically transgendered.

I thought you were innocent until proven guilty? I also thought friends were supposed to be like condoms: Protect you when things get hard…

It’s not only my lawyer who considers my whole life-style a crime in progress. So, apparently, do some of my erstwhile friends. But that doesn’t mean I have ever been guilty of anything – in court, or out of court. … Continue reading

Our gossip and our glee in other folk’s misery, demonstrates our humongous lack of Common Sense in this world of win at all cost. Hmmm….so much for do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Just ask former IMF President Strauss-Kahn…

Everything is gossip. Everything is schadenfraude. Everything is about winning. The truth is irrelevant. All that matters is what people are easily led to believe. And unfortunately, people would rather believe the worst. Because we are the ready chorus of … Continue reading
