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?)

Uh, is Ivory Madison a “Non-Practicing Lawyer?” Uh, I Don’t Know

Check it:

“ivory madison
CEO, entrepreneur, writer, and non-practicing lawyer”

Yeah, but don’t you have to be lawyer first before you can become a “non-practicing lawyer?”

I mean, if you isn’t an attorney in California and you isn’t an attorney outside of California, then where is you an attorney?

Honestly, I don’t know.

Just asking, Bro.

Oh, I mean just asking, Ma’am.

This MUNI Bus Commands San Franciscans to “Imagine No Religion”

Saturday, September 5th, 2009

The Freedom From Religion Foundation has a message for you.

As seen on Divisidero:

Isn’t the stained glass theme a little sacralicious? Mmmmm.

Anyway, the bus ads match the billboards. Let’s hear from the FFRF:

“Without religion, Prop 8 would not have passed. It is a fact that organized religion was responsible for revoking marriage equality in California. Proposition 8 was conceived by the megachurches and church leaders, bankrolled by donors from denominations such as the Mormons and religious-right groups, and vociferously promoted from the pulpits of Roman Catholic, fundamentalist Protestant and Mormon churches,” added Gaylor.

O.K. then.
