Leave Us Review: Ivory Madison is NOT a “Trained Attorney” and is NOT a “Nonpracticing Attorney” and is NOT Any Other Kind

Monday, March 5th, 2012

Now if you want to say that now-famous nonlawyer Ivory Madison was trained as an attorney, well, that would be O.K., I s’pose, but you can’t allege, as some have, recently, that she’s a “trained attorney.”

No.

No, no, no, no, no.*

Cause, you see, that goes too far.

OTOH, you can say that certain people thought IM was an attorney, for good reason, actually, and acted accordingly.

You could say that.

Imagine you’re a high school football player who went to a Catholic church to confess to sexual contact with a 15-year-old only to find out that the priest you thought you were talking to was actually Ashton Kutcher punking you. Would your mouthpiece start saying how evidence of your privileged communication should be thrown out of court because Ashton is a “trained priest?”

I doubt it.

But there are other good arguments to make, right?

Having said that, there’s nothing out there to suggest that Ivory acted improperly in the case at hand.

Did she “struggle” with the issues? Perhaps, but so have others before her

Let’s hope this is the final Ivory Madison is not an attorney post you’ll have to read.

Oh, so it turns out Ivory Madison a merely a “law school graduate.”

NTTAWWT. Not at all.

But when you hold yourself out as a “nonpracticing lawyer,” well, that can create confusion, non?

I think I’ll file this one under alpha female self-puffery, and that will that be that.

All right, GASNM.

(Boy, San Francisco is a small town, huh?)

SFIFF and Alpha Blondy Draw Crowds to the Lively Western Addition

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009

This was the scene last night in the Fillmore / NOPA / greater Western Addition (originally lands west of Larkin, including Pacific Heights). Despite temps in the 40′s and swirling winds, you had San Francisco International Film Festival fans lined at the Sundance Kabuki all the way to Webster and Alpha Blondy fans lined up at The Independent on Divisidero. Plus free chicken on Geary.

All in all, it was a lively, if chilly, scene last night. Click to expand:   

It sort of looked like SoMA…

…but without the gunplay.

Que bueno.

Diggler Electric Scooters Come to San Francisco

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

Petaluma-based Diggler, the original mountain scooter company, is selling more and more of its products to San Franciscans. Check out this sweet electric ride seen at Crissy Field.

And check the video. Maybe a little more practical than an E-Glide electric skateboard, anyway.

So when you hear the name Diggler, don’t think about Dirk Diggler (or Brock Landers), think about scooters.
