“Bill Cosby: In His Heart- King of Comedy No More”

Were you brought up on Bill Cosby LP records as was Ladyjustice?  Do you remember the infamous, “To Russell, My Brother Whom I Slept With?” It was 1968, and the first album recorded in a large venue.  That record strikes fear in LJ’s heart when she recalls the refrain, “Don’t Tell Dad. Don’t Tell Dad, Don’t Tell Dad!”  Corporal punishment-as the “Big Bad Dad” appeared to be alive and well… and was “acceptable” in those days.  The sound effects and deep voice just got louder and louder.

LadyJustice is at a slight disadvantage here, as she has not had the opportunity to view all of the judge shows, because she is always working a real job when they are aired.  No problem… she has viewed some of them and conducted her own “unscientific research” with a large dose of opinion (Which she never lacks…). Judge Judith Sheindlin: Ladyjustice is very...

When  the justice system fails miserably, people of courage make it right! In Life: Sharing your most trying experiences with others will set you free of  shouldering the burden alone and could change other’s lives in the future. Regardless of the nature of your problem, even if you are a private person by nature;  seeking out an objective person to hear you out and to offer advice may be your best medicine toward healing.   The chosen one should  not your “best girlfriend,” as she will often tell you what you want to hear and say whatever to avoid conflict...

When Courage Partners with Justice…. Wonderful Things Happen!

  Justice comes in many forms…  When it comes, whether in small doses or as a matter of significance, it is frequently precipitated by acts of courage.  This writer has the utmost respect for those who have demonstrated acts of courage in their pursuit of justice.  When courage is linked with justice, it can be for a personal cause or “for the greater good” as a means of helping others to open the door for change. Here are but two cases- one recent and one considerably less recent, but no less impressive! A recent case for the pairing of...
