  1. Are we allowed to comment after yesterday?

    That condo story with the sewage is shady. It's conveniently zoned for hotel/tourism, making the land very valuable. I smell a rat.

    1. I would be curious to know how many of these units are owner-occupied (my guess is not very many notwithstanding the guy they interviewed who has been there for 30 years) versus how many are rentals owned by one or a small group of investors through various LLCs. Seems like they may well be missing the real story. Typical local news.

  2. What else is happening out there today?

    My law practice is(metaphorically speaking) leaking raw sewage and I'm concerned it may collapse.

    1. I had Mexican leftovers for lunch and I am leaking now. Thank God for cellphones.

  3. Is it reasonable to have the State Bar investigate the advice that you gave to your client? https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/05/politics/john-eastman-california-bar-complaint/index.html

    1. If you're advising your client on how to commit a crime, yeah. If you're advising your client on how to subvert democracy, most definitely.

    2. Dear 1:28, I think I know what you meant but just going by your words, all of the "Progressive" Democrats that are really American Marxists are, by definition, trying to "subvert democracy." What you really mean is that if someone doesn't agree with your political views they should be investigated. If you and I ever went out for a beer, I bet I would disagree with you on many things, but I would not want you investigated because you disagree with me.

    3. "subvert[ing] democracy" is a bit of a red herring, considering that the USA is NOT a democracy, its a constitutional republic.

      The American Marxists referred to in the above 209 post, are in fact the real threat to the republic.

    4. What part of advising your client to ignore the votes cast by only a specific few states' electoral college electors is bad don't you understand?

    5. 2:09 sounds like he's already been out with someone for a Kool-Aid.

      Well said.

    7. 2:13 wrote 2 sentences, neither of which were "well said."
      Democracies and constitutional republics are not mutually exclusive, you cornstarched powdered donuts.

      And neither party is anywhere near Marxism, which you might know if you'd ever read Marx instead of just listening to talk radio and assuming soshulism = marxism = bad people = democrats. Right wing crazies annoy the living hell out of me because they are near-universally ignorant of the terms they throw around. This makes decent Republican policies harder to get enacted because y'all taint the opinions of non-crazies. That's a problem because government by consensus is important.

    1. Ah, "prestige" the ineffable golden ring!

      Where do I sign up?!

    2. The funny thing is that nothing in here suggests that the position or firm are even remotely prestigious. Prestige is just an empty buzz word, like "boutique" that is overused in the law business by hucksters trying to sell something.
