To my very close long-time friend, Frank M. Foran
In memory of your father, Senator Walter E. Foran
and your sister, Leisa Foran Ketchum
Frank flew into Orlando for a visit on April 24 and I took him to the Suburban Drive area because of its proximity to the airport.

A day at the Orange County Courthouse
If you watch the video until the end, you’ll see the violent, threatening and criminal brouhaha brought on by a totally angry blogger outside of the courthouse exactly as Jane Velez-Mitchell adeptly reported Friday night. SHOCKING! My, my, how the world churns…
The roll of a "die"
J. Cheney Mason is a high-profile attorney. According to his Web site, he is the recipient of many awards from professional organizations for his work in the legal field. No doubt, he has earned them, and I reluctantly place him in the same league as the Johnnie Cochrans and F. Lee Baileys of the world of lawyering, but that doesn't necessarily make it a good thing. One is dearly departed and the...
The motion to recuse Judge Stan Strickland

In Law: The Confrontation Clause & Hearsay Rule

At the time Shakespeare was writing his plays over 400 years ago, outrageous abuses were the daily...
My History Lesson
Mr. Robert Higerd was my 7th and 8th grade history and geography teacher back in the 60s at East Amwell Township School in Ringoes, NJ. He was good. He must have been in the Army before he started to teach because his favorite saying was, "At ease, disease - there's a fungus among us." I think it was an old military phrase.
At least once a week, we'd sit in his classroom...
Ladies & Gentlemen... The BEATLESTYX!
I was tinkering around last night. I took the Styx cover version of I Am The Walrus, deleted the audio track, and dubbed in the original Beatles song. This is just a practice shot at manipulating sight and sound in my video editing software.

Silly Advertising Ideas
I like to think of myself as a relatively creative type of person. After all, I did spend a good part of my life in advertising and design, and as a child, I drew portraits and painted in oils. Sometimes, I get these brilliantly silly advertising ideas I think big companies should, at least, consider trying....
