a punch and punditry-free zone today

Filed under: q.s. quickies — David Giacalone @ 4:33 pm

Want cogent commentary this snowy Friday?  Forget the sleepy f/k/a Gang, which is struggling to stay awake and work on our Holiday To Do List, while watching Schenectady’s first big snowstorm arrive out my window. Better head to Simple Justice, where Scott Greenfield is cranking ’em out as he does so consistently and well.  The past couple of days, Scott has discussed the appropriate bail and sentence for Bernie Madoff, the wonder of $605 per hour lawyer fees for associates (and $285 for summer student hires), some likely Rooms in the George W. Bush Library, and much more — while dealing with yokels who can’t remember his surname.

Here are a few poems reprised from last year’s post, “Holiday Hell Week at Family Court” (Dec. 18, 2007), which aimed to help families with parents and minor children living apart:

Christmas Day
the exchange
of custody

…….. John Stevenson – from Some of the Silence

from Mom’s to Dad’s
the clickity-clack
of suitcase wheels
