Ethics? Smethics? Well, Governor Nathan Deal’s appointees and office find themselves with their toes into hot water again…the question is will anyone do ANYTHING about it. One would think in this day and age that the Governor’s office would steer clear of any investigations and not touch that with a 10 foot pole. Not our governor, no, despite of his years of experience as a lawyer and politician, his staff and friends (appointees) are behaving like there’s something to hide.
I hope that there’s nothing lurking behind the scenes, I hope that people are just making bad choices. If anyone in the governor’s office reads this, GROW UP. Stop acting like there’s something to hide. At some point, you’ll get bitten by this behavior. You will embarrass not only yourself but the entire State of Georgia.
Weiner resigns. Please stop the jokes. He’s resigned. Now, whether this resignation is a swan song or just the show’s climax before the intermission remains to be seen. (See, William Jefferson Clinton, Elliott Spitzer, et al.)
Miranda Rights, Expanded. Children, even if they’re not under arrest, are entitled to hear their Miranda rights. I’m not sure, really, what good it would do in this child’s situation when faced with 3 or 4 adults, many of whom are charged with acting in loco parentis, as parent, for the child. How many kids would challenge the school principle? Teach you kids, ask for a lawyer.
Timeless. Here’s a summary of Dominique Strauss-Kahn’s interview. Somethings are timeless and transcend class: “Do I need a lawyer?” Yes, they took you off a plane, disrupted your schedule. Yes, you moron, you need a lawyer.
Sports Rioting.I just don’t understand. Why? Canadians are so restrained.
Justice, at a price? For your consideration, “can justice be bought?“
