Davis the Lion, trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. More pictures here.
I am having a business card swap. If you will, please send your business card to:

Jelani A. Berry
Assistant Public Defender
1-A Ninth Avenue
Shalimar, Florida 32579

Upon receipt, I will send you one of my business cards. In addition to receiving a business card inscribed with my illustrious name and occupation, you will receive that warm feeling of doing something completely useless, but fun nonetheless.

The Idiot Test because it's funny.

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of those governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness...


We've come a long way in 330 years. From the tyranny of the King to the vast, more complicated, and more diffuse tyranny of the current government. Through gerrymandering, signing statements, and back-room deals, our government has become a joke. There are no checks and balances. There is no representative democracy. It's broken. I mean, it works every once in a while - even a stopped watch is right twice a day (but who wears a watch any more, anyway?) - and we get the occasional true statesman I suppose, but I can't help but assume he's going to get outvoted by the other 534 members of Congress every time.

Sorry, I'm feeling cynical, and wanted to share.
I'm often asked what my favorite news feed is. It's gotta be The Daily Kitten. Awwwww, they're so damn CUTE!

Always makes you feel good right about the time you're ready to push your monitor off the back of your desk. (Not that I have thoughts like that or anything)

Sometimes, you've got to hate on people. Today, I'm a hater. I'm hating everything. Especially the fact that I just had McDonalds. I hate that I'm such a dumbass. I knew I'd feel guilty after that Big Mac and yet I ate it anyway. Maybe I should sue them for all of my guilt.

I'll let you know when I hate on myself for voting for George Allen despite his lack of character...I voted for Clinton so why not? Wait. Black people LOVE Bill Clinton and like TJ, Bill Clinton "LOVES" Black people. George Allen doesn't care about Black people.

Germans LOVE David Hasselhoff.

To date, 20 cases set for Jury trial next week. The State likes to hold on to the cases to see if I will make my clients plea. I, on the other hand, like to wait until jury selection day to see if the state will Nol Pros or Dismiss the case because they realize that I am too stubborn to realize that I needed to make my client plea. I love chicken.

It's been sooooo quiet around here. I just wanted to let the world know that I got my Pen Island pens last week! This is great too.
