All Rise...Do You Swear To Tell The Truth...

I'm home today with Hayden...

He's got strep throat, poor guy, and so he's on the Stevens 'soft' diet. When the kids get sick, they choose their favorite 'soft' foods, and for Hayden that includes wonton and egg drop soup from China Buffet, pudding, yogurt, small curd cottage cheese...yum...

And because I've been home with him since yesterday, I've had the opportunity to see what's on the television during the time I'm usually at the church...

interesting stuff...
Who knew there were so many court cases pending in our country, clogging up the hallways of our court houses, overwhelming our legal system...so many in fact that people have to go on television to get a fair hearing...

I wonder what kind of degree you have to have to be a judge on television? What kind of job experience do you need? What does a television judge's resume look like exactly? Where did Judge Alex work before he got this gig? How about Judge Maybelliene? Or the Texas judge?

I mean, I think I usually exhibit 'good sense'...maybe I could get a black robe and a gavel...I know I don't have a law degree but I never missed an episode of L.A. Law when it was on. I think I could remember all that 'legal' jargon if I went on youtube and looked at some old episodes...

I bet a lot of folks would love to stand before Judge Deb. I wouldn't sentence anyone to hard labor, or a chain gang. Maybe just a "I'm sorry" letter and court costs.

Someone has to pay for the camera man and the make up lady...
