Judge Rules: I Should've Gone to Med School

In the 1980s TV show "L.A. Law," one of its protagonists, an attorney played by Susan Dey, has a hearing in front of a judge in which two well-to-do ranchers are arguing over possession of a large jar of bull semen. The testimony and questioning of witnesses is played absolutely straight for a lengthy scene until the judge stands up and says angrily, "Counsel, I want to see both of you in my chambers immediately!"

Cut to Dey, opposing counsel and the judge entering his office, where they all collapse in hysterical laughter.

I certainly hope US District Court Judge Richard Berman holds a similar conference during his Deflategate hearing today. It's what the case deserves.

A Note to Loyal Readers, Particularly Cape Cod Scott

Dear Folks: Nothing bad has happened to me. I have not been blogging as regularly (ha!) for the last few months because I have been writing pieces for the Website for which I receive modest but suitable compensation. So those pieces have been the focus of my attention, and I've let the blog slide. I shouldn't have, and will try to return to more active posting.

But it's summer and I am one of life's grasshoppers, not its ants, so more active will probably be a relative term as well.
