    He just got back. And he met a few of his friends. Ella, whom you might remember was the pretty little girl who chased him around last year, hugged him twice and he made a few new friends around his own age.

    What meaningless rules?

    See, that's not even actually a rule. You can defend yourself pro se and even bring action without counsel, foolish as that is, in many civil circumstances.

    ...it is far more likely that one man will do right than it is for a crowd to decide to do right.
    Well, no. That's just you declaring a thing without any study of my system, the one you decided to weigh in on and declare a few things about like this, to support your bias.

    The fact is, and one supported by verdict after upheld verdict, that juries, properly constituted, informed of the evidence and charged, do good work that is confirmed by those learned in the law upon appeal and review.

    ...Bible says a judge and multiple witnesses. Nothing about lawyers, rights or juicyprunings.
    We aren't a theocracy and I haven't asserted that we're attempting to repeat what made perfect sense in that day but makes less sense in this one (see, better educated and informed jury pools, forensic evidence, etc.).

    Otherwise, the point of contention between us was never over how the OT system of justice functioned, but your unfounded declarations regarding mine.

    Rampant? Nonsense...cite any authoritative study confirming your view...I'll wait while you don't do that.

    ...All you have to do is open a newspaper.
    I agree that properly illustrates your problem, conflating your anecdotal impression with fact and rule.

    Tomorrow? Scandal rocks the Cub Reporters thread, parades and someone else tries to kill all the lawyers...

    Oh golly, this just in from Cousin Mike. He says feed store. I guess his family owned one at one time. Go figure! Certainly better than a cow barn! My hubby's relatives are a little odd.

    Wednesday Morning Movies

    This week I'd like to recommend a couple of off beat movies, one of which made its money back and the other...not so much.

    Salmon Fishing In The Yemen: on the surface and by the title it's hard to get very excited about a movie premised on bringing fish to the desert. But the real draw of this movie is the confluence of three lives and the way they impact one another, become entangled in that peculiar dream. There's romance and adventure and struggle against odds and nature (human and otherwise) in a film surprisingly tender and endearing.

    I give it 3 1/2 out of 5 stars


    The Big Year: has a lot going for it on the surface, Jack Black, Owen Wilson and Steve Martin in a light comedy, for starters. But then you hit the snag. It's a film about bird watching. And as comedies go, it's a film about bird watching.

    It grossed a little over seven million against a budget of around forty million. People just didn't flock to the vaguely amusing, semi romantic film about bird watching. And it's too bad, because while the premise isn't exactly engaging the actors mostly are and there are surprising turns in the three primary stories worth following.

    3 out of 5 stars

    It will be a little like what you remember, the odd digest, a few original bits of humor when I can find a minute, but I hope it will also be more of the sort of place where people can have conversation, not debate, and say hello and stretch their legs, tell a joke, talk about something they've read or watched or noodled.
    Humor on TOL?

    (Sorry AB, I meant humo(U)r. I didn't mean to offend the Across the Pond folks.)

    The digest?
    My grandmother is quite fond of the Reader's Digest. There were some funny bits in there, as I recall.

    We won't have a whine list.
    That's a shame. I found a really good Merlot for under $6.
