RISK TAKERS STICK IT TO TAXPAYERS IN LOUISIANA!

It’s been ten years ago when the bottom fell out of the Wal Street financial market.  Bankers and insurance executives, who should have gone into bankruptcy and possibly faced criminal charges, all ran to the federal government for bailouts. The first and worst was insurance giant AIG.  The asked for billions then flaunted their excess with outrageous spending.  Check out my new column to see my remembrances and conclusions from this terrible regulatory breakdown.  You can read my column now by Clicking Here or by going to the Red Flashing Box above.

Beetles No More!

Some sad news announced this week. VW will stop making iconic Beetle next summer. After selling it on and off in the U.S. for nearly seven decades, Volkswagen has decided to squash its iconic Beetle.  The company’s American unit announced … it would end global production of the third-generation bulbous bug in July. The last of the original bugs was produced in Puebla, Mexico, in 2003. My first car was a 1959 VW Beatle that had around 100,000 miles on it.  Many fond memories.  I drove it for another 100,000 miles then gave it to my brother.  He drove it until it just stopped one day at about 250,000 miles. The Beetle served us both well.  I’ll miss seeing them on the road.

IN DEFENSE OF DUMB COUNTRY LAWYERS!

I always felt pretty darn good about being a country lawyer.  I had a one-man barrister’s office in the small town of Ferriday, Louisiana for a number of years.  I still practice some rural country law and stay in touch with highly competent country lawyers all over the south on a regular basis.  Right now, I’m working on a project with a one-man legal office in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  But President Trump apparently is not impressed.  Just last week, he made comments about “dumb southern country lawyers.”  Huh?  Well Mr. President, I hope you will read my new column in defense of country lawyers. You can read it now by going to going to the Red Flashing Box  above, or by Clicking Here.
