Beetles No More!

Some sad news announced this week. VW will stop making iconic Beetle next summer. After selling it on and off in the U.S. for nearly seven decades, Volkswagen has decided to squash its iconic Beetle.  The company’s American unit announced … it would end global production of the third-generation bulbous bug in July. The last of the original bugs was produced in Puebla, Mexico, in 2003. My first car was a 1959 VW Beatle that had around 100,000 miles on it.  Many fond memories.  I drove it for another 100,000 miles then gave it to my brother.  He drove it until it just stopped one day at about 250,000 miles. The Beetle served us both well.  I’ll miss seeing them on the road.

IN DEFENSE OF DUMB COUNTRY LAWYERS!

I always felt pretty darn good about being a country lawyer.  I had a one-man barrister’s office in the small town of Ferriday, Louisiana for a number of years.  I still practice some rural country law and stay in touch with highly competent country lawyers all over the south on a regular basis.  Right now, I’m working on a project with a one-man legal office in Blowing Rock, North Carolina.  But President Trump apparently is not impressed.  Just last week, he made comments about “dumb southern country lawyers.”  Huh?  Well Mr. President, I hope you will read my new column in defense of country lawyers. You can read it now by going to going to the Red Flashing Box  above, or by Clicking Here.

HAPPY TRAILS TO YOU — THE END OF AN ERA

The young guns may not understand the meaning of this, but you will.  The Roy Rogers Museum in Branson, MO has closed its doors forever.  The contents of the museum were sold at a public auction.  Roy Rogers told his son, if the museum ever operates at a loss, close it, and sell the contents. He complied.  Do you remember the 1938 movie The Adventures of Robinhood, With Errol Flynn and Olivia de Havilland?  Well, Olivia rode Trigger in that movie.

Trigger was bred on a farm co-owned by Bing Crosby. Roy bought Trigger on a time payment plan for $2,500.  Roy and Trigger made 188 movies together.  Trigger even outdid Bob Hope by winning an Oscar in the movie Son of Paleface in 1953.  It is extremely sad to see this era lost forever. Despite the fact that Gene and Roy’s movies, as well as those of other great characters, can be bought or rented for viewing, today’s kids would rather spend their time playing video games.

Remembering on 9/11.

I had several close friend, including the New New York Insurance Commissioner Neil Levin, who were killed on 9/11, all having breakfast in the Twin Towers. My oldest daughter was working that day in the White House  as correspondent for NBC news, as reports  came in of other planes zeroing in. Her reports were chilling. A terrible tragedy we should always acknowledge and remember.
