...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...

Don't Forget...

With Edwards out, its a lot easier now for Al Gore to make his endorsement. And he hates Hillary. Expect an announcement soon that will be bigger than the Kennedy coup.

P.S. I will be giving my first opening statement in about one hour. I'm ready. If you happen to be on my jury, vote for me (but don't tell anyone I told you to.)

Kudos on the big step, Annie. And while i wouldn't pee on most lawyers if they were on fire, I'd break out the bottles of Evian in your case because, darn it, you're worth it.

I was surprised by the Kennedy thing; however, I'm surprised people kept voting for Ted after Chappaquiddick (I'm not sure how to spell that).

Of course you could count on me being in the tank for you, but I'd have to return that junk mail they send me about being a juror first. I'm thinking, that I wouldn't be amongst my peers. Just remember what I told you to do long ago... shake that moneymaker.

Best of luck, Annika.

Congradulations on your first Opening Statement

Posted by: Mike C. on Jan. 31, 2008

I will tell you what my mentor told me:

"When you have a witness, who you have been prepping for weeks, get on the stand and testify exactly opposite than he/she has been telling you, give me call. I'll buy you a drink and tell you that you are NOW a lawyer."

So, I hope it doesn't happen soon, Annie, but, it will happen, believe me.

They'll play the super bowl on Sunday because all the press and records in the world doesn't make the Patriots winners; they actually have to win the game. Funny things happen on the way to championships; ask Joe Montana. Hell, ask Casca.

The reason we have trials is the same. Funny things happen in trials.

So, my best advice: Be flexible and alert to change your game plan at any time.

Good luck. Can't wait to find out how you did.

Shelly, you are MY mentor because that exact thing happened to me yesterday! No lie.

The jury will be instructed this morning. I'll let you guys know.

Hey, don't worry, Annie. My case was a trial before a judge as the trier of fact; he mailed the decison, and despite the hiccup, I won the case.

So, I hope you do as well.

I owe you a drink; call me or write me and tell me where to deliver it.

All skill is in vain, if an angel pisses in the flintlock of your musket.

Gore hates the Hildebeast?

I didn't know that.

Makes sense though. Al and I finally agree on something.

Congrats on the courtroom domination! You will kick ass, no doubt.
