Solkar: James!: I'd imagine the ladies are planning the wedding and dad doesn't have much to do with it.

Don't stereotype. He may know where to get some faaaaaaabulous centerpiece arrangements.

He's really trying to push lambs blood red and sacrificial cross brown as the color scheme.  The ladies want to go with something more springy.

Our legal system simply doesn't work if an asshole lawyer can't take a shiatty case on behalf of assholes, or defend shiatheads and their shiatty laws.  I can't fault this guy, even if his cause or client is abhorrent.  It is the system.  We need people to defend racists, cop killers, killer cops, abortionists and clinic bombers, and to defend these horrible laws passed by a body of knuckle dragging barely literate politicians and bigoted stupid voters while someone else advances the cause on the other side of the case.

It's different when it affects their families directly.

Just like abortion.
