AAJ Convention in Chicago


I just got back from Chicago and the American Association for Justice's Convention. Wow! It was super. I learned a lot and got to see a great city ( I had never been to Chicago before).

Sunday we went to Wrigley Field to watch the Cubs and the Astros play -- and the Cubs win -- a great game. I will definitely go back there soon.

Also, most importantly, I learned some new things that I will share in the weeks to come on my blog.

Enjoy your summer.

TB Traveler Sued: 1.3 Million Sought

The lawsuit seeks 1.3 million dollars in damages.
I'm not sure what to think about Mr. Speaker. Did he just disregard the safety of others to get back home? Or were there other, possibly valid, reasons why he did what he did? Let's see how this plays out.
