High Drama in the World of Social Security Disability Appeals...

...after an attorney gets into an altercation with an administrative law judge, rather literally, at the hearing office. The American Bar Association has more.

Response to Human Rights Campaign

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints issued a statement today through a spokesman following the delivery of a petition by the Human Rights Campaign. The video appears immediately below my remarks. The text of the statement can be found here.

Comment: It is possible to agree to disagree on matters, particularly where it relates to core values and doctrine, without compromising them or our beliefs. At the same time, I submit that all of us, as children of our Heavenly Father, have the obligation and responsibility to treat each other with, at minimum, basic respect and courtesy. Indeed, the commandments go well beyond the aformentioned minimum (i.e., love thy neighbor as thyself). So I agree with all of this. There really isn't more that I can add. --SJR

Some Unexpected Name Recognition...Always a Good Thing? You Be the Judge.

Meet Mark Zuckerberg, a bankruptcy attorney from Indiana. Somehow he got confused with a fellow by the name of Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier tonight that Atty. Zuckerberg's office in Indianapolis now fields hundreds of calls from irate computer users seeking technical assistance the the social networking site, while others submit friend requests on his Facebook page. He has since put up his own website, iammarkzuckerberg.com, in which the attorney airs his side of the story.

Thankfully, I don't seem to share the same dilemma. Although my nickname does coincide with a horse illustrator from Connecticut. Should there be a sudden surge in demand for her artwork, my cellphone minutes might wind up getting used up in a hurry. --SJR
