Is the legal business a lofty profession or just a bunch of sleazeballs looking for the next ambulance to chase? A little of both. As a lawyer myself, I like to think the best of my colleagues. Personally, I'm looking for ethics, consistency, compassion and a strong grounding in the law from my judges. That and a showing of respect for all who enter the courtroom, from litigants, to the other lawyers, to victims of crimes and those accused of crimes, to the jurors who give up their time, and often money from their jobs to serve.
If they can't keep their campaigns out of the muck and mire, what will their courtrooms be like?
Think on it.
A happy Memorial Day to all. Here's a little something to throw on the barbie while you wade through all those flyers you've saved from your mailbox over the last few weeks. You have saved them all, for a deliberative decision making process, haven't you?
mmm..... mmmm good. I know, I know, another post on asparagus huh? I have grilled these three times in the last couple of weeks, so had to write about it. They are just so simple to make and very tasty! Trim, wash, wrap, brush with olive oil, season, and throw them on the grill. It's a slam dunk! Grilled Prosciutto wrapped asparagus is a great appetizer but I like them as a side dish as well. I recently paired them with grilled Cornish Games Hens. As I mentioned in a previous post, we do love asparagus in our home and it is asparagus season here in northern California. The earthiness of the Asparagus is enhanced by grilling. Add the thinly sliced Prosciutto and you are really onto something. Asparagus has always been one of my favorite grilled veggies and this recipe moves it up the list for sure. Cava is a good pairing for this as an appetizer. Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay also pair very well. The thicker fat asparagus work well wrapped individually while the smaller ones are better nicely wrapped in bundles of three or four.
