Name drop

In the early days of the internet, a joke was, "If you don't stop Googling yourself, you'll go blind." But I still risk it now and then. Sometimes I keep one eye closed just in case.

The other day while engaged in this activity, I found something remarkable: My name had come up in an oral argument before the United States Supreme Court a week and a half before. I am not making this up! See page 55 of this transcript.

Of course, this and $2.80 will get me on the Tri-Met bus. But ya gotta admit, it's kinda cool.


  1. Seniors can get that ride for $1.40. Enjoy your savings.

  2. Bo-Dude-Ski - thanks for your service

  3. Very cool, Jack. Congratulations. Does this mean you buy the next round?

  4. Sure beats being referenced to in regards to a landmark case where you were on the wrong side of the law, e.g. Al Capone. You have arrived!

    1. Nothing will make up for losing that case in the Oregon courts about the Portland arts tax. Never forget, especially when Sam Adams wants your vote again.

The platform used for this blog is awfully wonky when it comes to comments. It may work for you, it may not. It's a Google thing, and beyond my control. Apologies if you can't get through. You can email me a comment at, and if it's appropriate, I can post it here for you.
