Catchin’ up ...
I’ve had some network issues the past few days, so here’s some catch-up links ...
■ The hit-and-run grandmas pleaded not guilty to nine counts of fraud in connection with multimillion-dollar life insurance policies they took out on two homeless men who were later killed in hit-and-run accidents. Read the Los Angeles Times story here. And see previous post here.
■ The Palm Beach Post criticizes the state of Florida (and the growers) for not doing enough to protect farmworkers from exposure to pesticides. Read the editorial here. And see previous post about the possible effects of pesticide exposure here.
■ Some blogs worth checking out: The Truth About False Confessions, Anonymous Law Student, Rattler Nation (if you're interested in FAMU) and the Florida Progessive Coalition blog. If you live in Brevard, Lake, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole or Volusia county, you need to read How Shall We Grow? and think about the future growth of Central Florida.
■ And a public defender blog called Just Peachy appeared and disappeared before I even got a chance to comment. You can still read excerpts at Arbitrary and Capricious (scroll down to May 29) and at Public Defender Stuff.
■ I missed the 13th juror’s one-year blogiversary!
