Slave Ranch Book Price Reduction
I've dropped the price of my Kindle book, The Texas Slave Ranch: How a Degenerate Ranching Family Got Away With Murder, available on Amazon.com for $1.99. Sales are picking up and I hope this will give them an extra boost.

FBI to Bexar County Courthouse: Your Phone Has Been Tapped

 The San Antonio Express-News has learned that hundreds of letters have been sent by federal authorities notifying people that a wiretap was used to eavesdrop on their phone calls and texts with Al Acevedo Jr., who is under investigation over allegations that he provided gifts or bribes to people within the criminal justice system for favors on his cases.

SAN ANTONIO — A San Antonio defense lawyer is at the center of a federal investigation into allegations of corruption of the criminal justice system in Bexar County, the San Antonio Express-News has confirmed through several sources, including the attorney himself.

Problem Clients - Red Flags
Here are some red flags that warn that a potential client is going to be trouble. PC has already done a lot of research and knows all about the law; PC who says 'it's not about the money, it's the principle; PC who wants it done right now; PC who waits until last minute to file an answer or appeal or whatever; PC whose case is bumping up against statute of limitations; PC who has already had one or more (the more the worse) lawyers, and wants to tell you sad tale of how they wouldn't return calls, wouldn't work the case, sold them out, and so on; PC who wants to haggle over the fee; PC who claims he/she heard you are the best and meanest lawyer in town and will "show the bastards"; PC who says "I have a brother in law whose son knows a man he works with who got a million dollar settlement"; PC who doesn't want to know how much it will cost, because has no intention of ever paying..
There are lots of others but these immediately come to mind.

One-Percent Jokes and Plutocrats in Drag: What I Saw When I Saw When I Crashed a Wall Street Secret Society
I don't like Obama's attempts to whip up class envy, but the some of the so-called "one-percenters" are an arrogant bunch, like the subjects of this article about a bunch of investment bankers in NYC getting dolled up in drag.
