Nuclear Proliferation – More Than One Kind

September 3rd, 2015, No Comments

The United Nations Office for Armament Affairs offers up a history of agreements for the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons begun in 1968. Extended indefinitely in 1995, there are 190 signers of this agreement limiting increases of these devices. While everybody has been involved in that endeavor, war has neither ceased nor desisted. There is yet […]

Once again, we see schoolchildren victimized by the appearance of pesticide contamination in or around schools.

I’ve already pointed out the results of pesticide poisoning as it affects schools in New York City (my own law […]

Political Fever in Greece

November 6th, 2012, No Comments

I’m down with a fever and other maladies from an excess of enthusiasm by private demonstrators using spray cans holding materials you’d rather not inquire into very closely. In the mean time, I’ve been listening to the other forms of fever in this ancestral home of republics. The predictions and endorsements are all in, favoring […]

Yesterday has Arrived – Update on an Old Story about Smell-O-Phones

October 10th, 2012, No Comments

Much of this blog has been devoted to the subject of the misuse of chemicals which have adverse impacts upon human health. Back in 2007 I posted about an expected ‘innovation’ in I-Phone technology under the title of, “Smell-O-Phones; A fragrance coming VERY near you and your lungs”. This concerned the insertion of liquid material […]

The Unenforceable Law: Chemical Battery

March 24th, 2011, No Comments

My last post described the fact that I was forced to file a complaint with the Bar Association of New York about the lack of tangible work product in the prosecution of my lawsuit (re: pesticide poisoning) over the past five years.

My Case Continues: The Morality of Litigation, part IV

March 16th, 2011, No Comments

My case, cited here, disappeared before the court in an unusual decision made in 2007. As my (then) five year old case was still missing the lion’s share of discovery documents and a witness list, it was marked ‘disposed’ with leave to renew once we’d done our homework. In a highly unusual move, the court […]

The New York Times reported a horrendous crime perpetrated upon young girls and their teachers in Afghanistan over a period of years, in the form of poisoning.

The Morality of Litigation – Part II

August 15th, 2010, No Comments

Remembering the Principles (Part 1, ‘Forgetting the Principles’ is here and Part 3, ‘Enforcing the Principles’ is here) By now, you’ve gotten your cup of hot, McDonald’s coffee as suggested at the end of my last post on litigation. Our court system was designed to compensate victims and rectify social injustices in America. These principles […]
