An Ad Hominem Calumny! Email Exchange With Fitzpatrick and a Discussion on the US Legal System

image Oh, I get it now.  Trying to get a rise out of me.  Nice try.  Mom is right – bully hooligans with what looks like complete disrespect for the law.

Here’s our email exchange (link is back up!).  Love the vocabulary though.  So far, some good words I learned:

And I am also taking this opportunity to “soft-launchwww.Wiki-Law.com.
