Counsel? We don't have to give you any stinkin' counsel!

Posted by: Jambo / 12:06 AM

Nothing to see here folks. Move along, move along.

Saying that contacts between lawyers and detainees have caused “intractable problems,” the Justice Department is seeking to limit lawyers’ contact with their clients and access to evidence.
Intractable problems=sliver of constitutional rights. In cases like this I always remember that the soldiers who perpetrated the Boston Massacre were represented by John Adams, just in case I ever wonder what the founders would think of the situation.



So Mr. Jambo, a self-described 'virtuous pagan,' wrote earlier this week:

"I'm no more a pagan than I am a Christian or a Jew) who could expect to spend his eternity in a pleasant, if nondescript, realm that, while not punishing, falls just a little short of what could have been had I made some different choices. Kind of like if I moved to St. Paul."

Oh really? St. Paul is like Limbo? Apparently, you think pretentiousness is a virtue as well! I guess some things never change when one is an inveterate navel gazer, or is that 'geezer?'

I didn't realize that living where I do (in the Saintly City), falls 'just a little bit short' of 'what could have been.' I live in a metropolitan area with over 3 million people, travel regularly to all parts of it and every part of it has good and bad points.

I even travel across the river to a place where the citizenry has been shrewd enough to pay for a billionaire's stadium without a roof so I can watch the Twins on their dime. Oh, that's right, Minneapolitans didn't vote to tax themselves for Pohlad's boondoggle. Kind of makes me wonder what kind of government they have over there in Oz. (Pay no attention to the man behind the center field pine trees. I also wonder if the scent from those trees will offset the fragrance of burning garbage next door.)

I often ponder 'what could have been' if I lived in a heavenly place like South Dakota, home of Bill Janklow. It's no wonder why slinking into "Murderapolis" would seem like a jaunt past the pearly gates to a mumble jumble Jambo. Get off your high horse Jambo; you couldn't handle St. Paul. I'll be in Minneapolis later today, for a funeral. Maybe I should drop by Jambo's place for some "training" in secular piety while I'm there.

I knew I would get grief over that post, but figured it would be from irate Papists from Vatican City rather than crotchety curmudgeons from Palookaville.

Three words: Mayor Norm Coleman. 'Nuff said, as Stan Lee used to say.

As Joe Twoomey, quoting the Carol Burnett Show's malapropist Norm Crosby, used to say, "I resemble that remark.

As for Mayor Norm Coleman, all I can say is that St. Paul's City Council members have managed to stay out of prison, which is more than can be said for the Mill(rate) City's Biernat and Zimmerperson.

Heck, be thankful for a comment!

It's nice to know that you are out there reading. That you are seething with anger is just a bonus!
