GOING FOR BROKE ... AT 7TH AND MONTANA


It was another sign of the times at 7th and Montana this morning as a man Declared Bankruptcy shortly after leaving Our Favorite Starbucks. I'm not kidding. The man (pictured above) quietly sipped a cappuccino while his lawyer, a woman with a rose in her hair and a voice that sounded like Scrooge McDuck on Helium, counseled him on the ins and outs of avoiding creditors. "Here you go," she said, slipping him what appeared to be a bankruptcy filing, "Just sign and date this form." Then she lowered her voice and -- assuming I was eavesdropping correctly -- started talking about fraud. I couldn't hear the rest of their conversation because they got up and changed tables. The nerve of some people ...!

Better be careful, she looks like she could take you :o)

Seriously, bankruptcy is a sad thing, and I hope he gets things back together.

It is a sad event, I concur with Ken that I hope he is able to get it back together.

must have been a sad chain of events that led to this tragic episode of financial ruin. But we must remember that out of the muck grows the lotus and this might spur him on to new heights!

LOL!...Marty, I guess some people just don't have a sense of what's entertaining! I mean I myself, have been the source of endlessly entertaining episodes of one kind or another!...I say, "Step up to the bat and take your turn...And do it with a little style"..."And then smile!"
