About Me

I'm a lawyer primarily representing clients who are being sued. I am a retired Army Judge Advocate. Nothing I post here, including any comments about legal topics, should be construed as legal advice or creating an attorney-client relationship.

For my 10,000th post, I feel like I should be saying something profound.

As the number was approaching, I have been trying to come up with the right ideas but have not found anything earth shattering or that hadn't been said before by others.

What I can say is that DU is very important to me. I am a rare Democrat in ruby red south Arkansas. Reading DU every night keeps me grounded in the knowledge that we few Democrats here in the piney woods are not alone.

I have made friends that I will never meet. I have had valuable discussions with well informed people on important issues. I also enjoy the lighter side of DU in the Lounge. There are frequent posters for whom I cannot leave posts unopened.

I appreciate the work done by EarlG, the administrators, and the MIRT in keeping DU a safe and sane place for discussion.

Thanks DU.

I voted today on the first day of early voting in Arkansas and had a couple of realizations.

First, I did the very thing for which we criticize the MAGATs - I voted a straight party line. I voted for all the Democrats (including one that I know personally and really do not like). I did not vote in two races in which there was no Democratic candidate. I voted against all the matters referred by the GOP-controlled state legislature. In the "non-partisan" Supreme Court election, I voted against the candidate endorsed by the GOP. Voting did not require any thought.

Second, all of the poll workers were black women. I know all of these ladies and they would not tolerate any attempt by MAGAts to interfere with people voting. They are all formidable women that should not be trifled with.
