A little late on the post this week. Nonetheless, don’t forget to check out my weekly post on Bitter Lawyer (read here). I was worried about posting on this website because for some reason the Internet has been relatively calm this week. Other than Tupac “performing” at Coachella. I say “performing” cause he is obviously just still alive. My phone rarely has service yet you can make an image of a dude dead 16 years bouncing around stage, rapping and dancing flawlessly? Nice try science. Also, Coachella is the worst place imaginable to bring back Tupac. Let’s just say not everybody is of the right mind at that festival and all the sudden they look up and see Pac? Massive freakout. Very irresponsible if you ask me.
P.S. Science… Bring back Biggie.
I am getting to the age where a lot of my friends are either getting married or having children. I, on the other hand, am just getting more awesome but that is neither here nor there. For those of you who are on the latter portion of the friends and looking to pick out baby names; don’t do this. A suspect named Fellony was arrested and charged with, you guessed it, felony battery. Fellony Silas, allegedly smashed a glass on top of a woman’s head in an Indiana bar. I know that Malcolm Gladwell and Freakanomics already discussed this but seriously. I’m not saying just because your name is Fellony means you are going to be charged with a felony, but its safe to assume the deck is stacked against you.
A name isn’t the only time when you are sometimes just stuck. As a lawyer there are times when you have fantastic clients (like all of mine) and there are times when you are not so lucky. When you really are grasping for straws in an effort to defend your client. Don’t believe me? Just ask Vinoo Varghese. Varghese represents Richard Hovan, a former private school teacher, who is alleged to have an illegal relationship with a student. In trying to show that his client is a “good guy,” Varghese has entered Hovan’s 2003 appearance on The Price is Right as evidence. In the video, it is apparent that Hovan is happy and giggling and “You can see his genuine nature here.” Granted its not exactly ironclad evidence but its way better than if Richard Hovan would have been on Let’s Make a Deal. That show is just creepy.
