Tossed Salad Friday

~~How is it that the judge in the Chad Johnson (formerly Ochocinco) case was OK with giving him only probation as punishment for head-butting his spouse, but became enraged enough to impose 30 days in jail when he patted his lawyer’s butt? I understand respect for the court, but c’mon, judge:  the crime of domestic abuse doesn’t warrant incarceration, but an Attaboy! does?

~~While I’m griping, why is it that the Plan B pill is available to anyone tall enough to reach the pharmacy counter, but I have to pay $40 to a dermatologist to get a prescription for a skin cream? I’m cool with the Plan B part, appellate judges, but how about you tackle the apparent arbitrariness of which treatments/drugs need a prescription and which don’t?

~~ I’m thinking that at least 80% of the times someone says, “Here’s something right off the top of my head…” or “I have a random thought…” it’s neither spontaneous nor accidental. What do you think?

~~A new client said he was referred by my father.  I wondered how that could be, since dad had been gone since 1999.  “Oh, I knew him very well,” said the client. “He always said, ‘If you sell your house, call my daughter— she’ll do a great job for you.’”  How great is it when your dad gives you a hug and sends you a fee from beyond?

~~ Here’s a photo of my dad (and mom). Dad & Mom He liked Father’s Day, because there was usually a Carvel cake and something barbequed to eat.  He wasn’t that particular about what came off the grill as long as the ketchup would cling to it while he devoured it!

Have a great weekend, including a wonderful Father’s Day if you’re celebrating.  Yes, I’m still cheering on my woebegone team…
LET’S GO METS!
