Abstract view in pen

Across the street

Melting lines.

When will this thing move?

I assume Thruway owns the lot.  They are a tenant and have permission to park.  Does it trigger any sign ordinances?

Vikings unsure what to make of pagan symbols

UVA student Hannah Graham's alleged kidnapper, Jesse Leroy Matthew Jr., a former Liberty University student

This is tragic.  I hope they find Graham and that she's okay, although I fear the worst.  Guy was accused of raping a student while he attended Liberty.  Sad this guy ever made it to Charlottesville.

Unity dinner

Stick it to Thom Senator Hagan (not Kay you doofus).

Gridlock on I-40

On the weekend.  I assume road construction or maybe some big bust.

What do you do when the signs aren't clear?

Is this refill? Roofies? Or roofs? I know not.

Doing my annual VA disability reaccreditation seminar

I try and do one once a year, but I have to do it within 2 years of accredidtion.  That's what I'm doing today.

Lots of workouts at the Y

Lawyers don't work out enough.  I try to make that statement less true.

Good meeting at Bethesda Center re SSD

I appreciate all the Social Security disability referrals.

Lots of checkins for SSD hearings

Good Social Security disability lawyers are full time, and they show up for hearings.

At Greensboro ODAR for a SSD hearing

Client isn't here.  Glad they allow for one continuance. It is important to show up for your client.  Hard to do if you as a lawyer don't show up to court.

This is true even when it isn't

It is funny when true and funnier when untrue.

Glad the Forsyth County Public Library is finally getting renovated

The bond has been tied up with the County Commissioners for years.  We need libraries--great libraries--for they are the repositories of knowledge and the most egalitarian of institutions.

Great story

And it shows good people get put in jail all the time.  If so-called-Christians believe in redemption, then they need to believe in redemption.

Jonathan Dwyer arrested on two separate domestic violence incidents

These things are coming in droves now for the NFL.  If true, these are horrible.  I wonder how many more will be coming.  I don't no if it is that surprising.  Football is violent, so it isn't surprising football players are violent.  I just didn't expect so many of them to beat women and children.  Cowards.

#Scotlanddecides tomorrow

Whether they will stay a part of Great Britain.  The 300 plus year union could end.  This is a big deal.  The history majors are watching--including me.

Greg Hardy suspended for 6 games with pay

Guess he didn't have a morals clause.  Usually committing a crime is grounds for dismissal.  Clearly not in the NFL.  Violence against women is cowardly.  Hardy is a coward.  That's obvious.

Ready for court

Thank you Jillian. I love you.

The walk to Social Security disability hearings

I've made it many times.  In fact, I did today.  I have lots of hearings.

This used to be a movie theatre

Better entertainment then.  I don't know what you call this now--other than it's ascribed moniker.  I wonder if the preacher has "20,000 pounds of headlights stapled to his chest."

10% of Americans have their wages garnished says NPR

This is staggering.  The Payday loans are the most unsettling.  For example, a $200 debt can balloon to $4,000.  Absurd.

I ripped this with my mind

The intellect is powerful.

Unsafe driving conditions

But consider how this picture would look if stuff was in there.

Odd juxtaposition

Or so it would seem.

Adrian Peterson to play Sunday

You must be kidding me.  I believe in innocent until proven guilty, but this is a bit much.  Major black eye for the NFL.  Goodell must go.

Is this really necessary?

It is overcompensating.  Of course, a fat redneck was driving.  Stereotype yet true.

Exorcist staircase

Demons take many different forms.  The human ones are the ones who worry me.

Panthers should kick Greg Hardy off the team

He was found guilty of assault.  He slammed his girlfriend's arm with a toilet seat. Then he choked her.  Jerry Richardson's tears won't change that.  Hardy's continued presence on the team is shameful.  The NFL is a national disgrace.

We need more public transportation in NC

It is better for the environment, lessens our need forforeign oil, and it is better for the roads.  Also, people who take public transportation are more likely to walk more and be healthier.  That's better for them and for us.

Maya Angelou at Cosmos Club

This is because she won the Presidential Medal of Freedom.  A literary genius and civil rights leader.

Adrian Peterson indicted on felony injury to a child charge

The NFL keeps getting hit and rightfully so.  It appears Peterson possibly beat his son.  He and Ray Rice are two of many players who engage in such behavior.  Goodell needs to go.  Maybe cancel the season.

Misguided and further tread on

You've been tread on your whole life.  By joining the Koch manufactured Tea Party, you are being tread on further.  They are laughing at you and using you because you will never benefit--only they will.  

Oscar Pistorius guilty of culpable homicide

He may not get much of a sentence.  Not sure what to make of it.

Too much homelessness in Winston-Salem

An example...

Roger Goodell and NFL had Ray Rice tape in April

These scumbags.  They weren't going to do a damn thing.  Then they got caught and had to get rid of Rice.  So the league keeps players who are violent to women?  They allow the bounty system to persist; they knew about brain damage issues for years; and they let the blatantly racist name Redskins continue.  What a crap league.

Darth Vader looks over me--no angel in sight

But that's okay.  Lawyers take all the help they can get.
