fridays plays

Nothing early today. There are several plays that could develop later that are close so expect a late play later.

The split between early and late plays is about 50-50 and I would expect that to continue through the rest of the season. These late plays are FREE. Just send me your email address and I will add you to the group receiving late plays.

“Enjoy the fall”

I used to read a lot back in my other life. One author I read came up with a story that has helped me through out life in keeping my perspective on the ups and downs that you inevitably go through.

The authors name is Gerry Spence. Spence in his time was probably in the top 5 trial attorneys in the country. He had many famous trials. The silkwood case where radioactive material leaked and killed karen silkwood. He came up with the phrase to help the jury understand the concept of absolute liablity ” if the lion gets away the owner has to pay”.

He also had a famous case where he represented a lawman that shot and killed his subject. The town was in arms since the subject had never drawn a weapon. Spence was hired to represent the lawman for murder. In voir dire he had to choose between jurors that indicated that they had no preconceived notions about his clients guilt or innocence as opposed to onces that indicate based upon what they read that they felt his client was guilty…. He choose the jurors that felt his client was guilty since they were honest.

His defense was that the lawman based upon his experience knew the person was going to draw a gun. And if you waited….it was too late. Of course he won the case.

Imelda Marcos the wife of the Philippine dictator Fernando as your recall a number of years ago was charged by the federal government and tried here in the U.S in federal court. This lady could of hired anyone she wanted with her wealth and who did she hire…an attorney from Jackson Hole Wyoming…Gerry Spence. And of course…..she was found not guilty.

In any event if you want to get some interesting reading I recommend all of his books about his trial work. One in particular is “Trial by Fire”

The point of all this is in one of his books he talks about attorneys that hate to go into the courtroom and try a case. The anxiety and stress the attorney faces is terrible and they fight it all the way to the courthouse steps. So he tells this story to help them…

He talks about a person hanging from a cliff. The person is hanging and trying to get up so he dosnt fall. He scratches and pulls and does everything he can to avoid falling. His hands are bleeding, his arms are tired, he is exhausted and torn by the possibility he will fall. He does this for hours and dosnt want to give up. But……..sooner or later when it becomes inevitable that you cannot avoid falling…….

” Let go and enjoy the fall”

So when your running bad……think of Spence’s advice. And believe me…it helps.

None today
