Once a month, the District Court where I primarily practice has a day devoted to juveniles. I am the designated juvenile lawyer and today is the July day.
I try to tell myself that the crimes and the numbers are much worse in other locations, but it is still always a very long day and one that doesn't do much to reinforce my natural optimism.
So, off I go after this last cup of coffee and I'll leave behind my computer and the Weather Channel and the news of Hurricane Dolly.
Batten down the hatches, cousin Texican and take care.
