I’d be surprised if any state has a monopoly on Crankus Americanus, even taking it per capita. I worked briefly years back for a lawyer who was somewhat larger than life, sui generis, maybe even over the top, who took on a lot of fight-the-power, sometimes even pro bono work. They don’t tend to run in packs, and its hard for them to stay in firms even if they do join up with their kind. So unless you’re high on the card of the Canis Major, you can sort of get lost in the docket shuffle.

Ugh on the leaf-and-snow part. Back when I *had* a lawn, the worst thing was to get the first sticking snow on the ground before the last bag of crinkly brown oak leaves went up the lot into the humus pile. But this was usually around Thanksgiving, if it happened, and not before the Halloween candy got stale.

It’s not called a “rim shot”, it’s called a “sting”.

I don’t know what has happened, exactly, but now she’s looking for a different lawyer. Her take is that he was not giving her the attention she was due. We hope it isn’t a case of his having bigger fish to fry.

In any state, though, you’ll hear local news which shows YOU the small-time wackiness that the rest of the country isn’t likely to learn. I honestly can’t think of THAT much weirdness coming from Colorado (although I do get more of it than I usually would thanks to your blog!).
