  1. Hopefully, no choke holds were employed in subduing this obviously wanton danger to the public. As well, this is a great chance for the powerful law firm retained by Motel 6 dons to perform its own gut check.
    As one firmly on the side of intellectual property law, this excessive use of intimidation against an obviously desperate legal worker disgusts me.

  2. A friend posted a charming photo from Fatima from years back, including the brother of Saints Jacinta and Francisco Martin outside his little gift shop.
    He sold commemorative china and other such items. Some had a smiling JPII image.
    I expect the Wojtylan administration wasn’t interested in prosecuting Snr. Martin to the full extent of the law.
