The Sect, Texas and $7 Million

Experts now figure that the legal costs to the state of Texas is currently resting at $7 million over the failed Sect kid grab. By the time that civil lawsuits are done and the lawyers are done milking the state…the cost will likely cross the $150 million point (my personal estimate). Each kid will likely be able to ask for $500k in damages and likely collect on it. That'll pay for alot of perfume, lego's, and toys.

It becomes amusing looking at the social service dimwits from the state and the past successful failures. Various folks from Texas have long complained at the incompetence within the social service crowd….with the mafia-like attitude that they carried, and the enormous weight they had in court cases against folks.

Who pays the $7 million in current costs? The state tax payer. Who will pay the $150 million in potential future costs? The state tax payer. So things will be interesting as elections approach and folks have to explain where the money went and why they screwed up.

Only in India

A kinda amusing story from India.....Meena Verma was married....had two kids....and had issues with the in-laws for violence.....so she took them to court. There in the court....the judge kinda stops things and says that she isn't really married to the husband anymore....that a divorce has taken place....shocking both husband and wife.

The best we can say.....about ten years ago.....the husband's brother who was a lawyer....took it upon himself to file divorce paperwork when the couple was discussing the matter of separation. Yep....as a lawyer....he was able to accomplish everything without the wife or husband being in court.

So now....the husband and wife have filed a complaint against the husband's brother for forgery. The couple haven't really said what comes next....if they will remarry or not. This will be a curious matter for the Indian court to settle.

In Bama.....we'd look upon this as something by the graces of God almighty and not to hinder such matters....thus leaving the court quickly....assembling our bass gear, the boat, and personal clothing....with guns and ammo dumped quickly in the truck and leaving for the next county to restart our life with Wanda Jean (our hostess of the mostest over the past years). Course....the odds of some idiot judge in Bama being dim enough to sign off on such paperwork without either showing up.....is pretty low.

SF Tiger Story Update

So today, we know that the autopsy is finished off the dimwit kid who got mauled by the SF tiger several months ago. The kid had a fair amount of alcohol and mary-j-u-wanna in his system. The lawyer handling the family's case....says that it proves nothing.

From my own personal standpoint....the kid was screwing around in the zoo....with his two buddies who still live today....and pissed-off the tiger big-time. So the tiger did what was supposed to be impossible....and jumped the fence....to kill the punk, and would have killed the other two if possible.

I have little compassion for the kid or his family. He asked for it and got it. When idiots like this go to a zoo....and want to dump their version of "fun" on a animal...they've earned the right to get mauled. So I have no pity.
