BRUCE A. BRENNAN BLOG FROM THE WORLD AND MY MIND
The news as I see it and the views as I want them.
October 29 is … Hermit Day
The St. Louis Cardinals, managed by the former manager of the White Sox, are world champions of professional baseball. They defeated the Texas Rangers last evening 6 – 2 to win the World Series 4 games to 3. Let the Albert Pujols bidding begin!
Say HI to Herman if you see him today. Do not bother looking in St. Louis. Texas would be a good place to look. You probably won’t, he likes to be alone. I’m telling you now, Mrs Brown, you’ve got a lovely daughter. No, wait, There’s kind of a hush all over the world. I’m into something good because I’m Henry the VIII, I Am.
Nice try John, it just did not work, yet. On Thursday, a federal judge in North Carolina refused to dismiss criminal charges against John Edwards, local station WTVD reports.
U.S. District Court Judge Catherine C. Eagles ruled in Greensboro that the federal government's case against the former presidential candidate and U.S. senator can proceed.
Mr. Edwards will likely become a hermit now. I hope former Judge Donald D. Thompson just dries up and becomes a hermit. He already has the toys he needs to keep busy.
A former Creek County judge convicted of exposing himself and using a male enhancement device while seated at the bench is not eligible to receive judicial retirement benefits, the Oklahoma Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday.
The high court upheld a decision by the Oklahoma Public Employees Retirement System Board of Trustees, ruling that Donald D. Thompson, a 23-year veteran of the Sooner State legal system, violated his oath of office by using a penis pump while presiding over trials, according to NewsOK.
Thompson served about 20 months in prison after being found guilty in 2006, at which time his monthly pension of $7,789 was discontinued. During his own trial, Thompson unsuccessfully argued that the criminal actions did not disrupt the proceedings in his courtroom, Tulsa World reported. After leaving prison, Thompson registered as a sex offender. He also faces a pending felony charge dating back to a July 19 traffic stop when police allegedly found Thompson driving under the influence.
Just a couple of thoughts I had and you should too or at least think about.
