I’m Just A Cock-Eyed Idealist

[Yes, I was disgusted yesterday. No, that has not passed. But the Jets won last night and I’m going to stay in an upbeat mood as long as I can.]

Another comment on my recent Huffington Post piece There's No Business Like Loan Business from a local bankruptcy lawyer, who seems to be doing a booming business:

I liked your Huffington post, and I agree with you that the middle ground resolution you suggested, in which judges would analyze each and every case, would be ideal, but this concept is far too idealistic rather than realistic. This country simply doesn't have the resources for that. This is exactly why bankruptcy is so popular.

Makes you think, right? We don’t have the resources to aid debtors to stay in their homes. But we would have to find some resources if they became homeless and sought food and shelter from social service agencies.

Have a great weekend!

I hope you've gotten a chance to read or pick up the new Boating Times Long Island--we're getting great feedback on the look (though I'm partial to the editorial contents).

I hope the Blueshirts get back on track to make my sports' mindset a bit better. Way to go,
J!E!T!S!

I don't know where your allegiance lies, but the only football worth watching this weekend will be in the Georgia Dome on Saturday afternoon. The SEC championship game is the defacto national championship. (#1 vs. #2 after the regular season ends?) You will see on display all of all the future NFL talent you could dream of.

I have enjoyed your blog for some time now, and feel the only way I can reciprocate is by offering you the position of Honorary Alabama Fan for the duration of the season. I believe there is fine print on the back of my law school diploma that grants me this authority. Should you choose to accept this honor, you will have a stake in the game, and with any luck, bragging rights and part of an SEC championship. You can google "Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer" for the appropriate cheer.

Best wishes and ROLL TIDE!

Re: Football
Hi,

My allegiance in football is to the NY Jets and any team (except the Cowboys)that plays the Pats or the Fish. I never followed college football, and though my son is a HUGE Michigan Wolverine fan, I am not enamored of a sport where ratings and polls, rather than real playoffs, seem to decide the season.

Having said that, I have no loyalty to another college team that would prevent me from accepting your gracious award of temporary honorary fanship of Alabama. If you promise not to tell my son, I hope you'll get your wish fulfilled so at the end of the game you can cheer:

We just beat the hell outta’ you!
Rammer Jammer Yellow Hammer
Give ‘em hell, Alabama!

Good luck.

1. My son posted "ROLL TIDE!" on his facebook page. Forgot he detests FL.

2. I also forgot where Joe Willie went to college.

3. Totally impressive win on Saturday. Maybe one extra fan rooting for Alabama put them over, in which case, anonymous reader with the power to grant fandom, you should be Tide Fan Of The Year!
