Legal Eagles

Yesterday I had the rare opportunity and great privilege to attend a swearing-in ceremony for one of Mitten's newest and greatest legal-type people. Unlike the other plebes who were stuck getting sworn in en masse in District Court in between parking fines and disorderly conduct charges, YooperTuna was able to swing a super-cool private swearing-in ceremony with a Michigan Supreme Court Judge in the Hall of Justice.

Seriously. The brand new super-huge legal building is called

After parking a mile away and crossing the grounds, several of us entered

and began going through security proceedings. Despite the metal detectors and scanning devices, my favorite part of the upper level security team was glancing at their computer screen, whose desktop displayed a large picture of Abbott and Costello. I knew we were in good hands. We rode the elevator to the sixth floor and entered the Supreme Court chambers. How cool was this? I couldn't decide whether to launch into my favorite Law and Order monologue or go all Jack Nicholson in "A Few Good Men." Mensch's dad walked in and asked, "Bride or Groom's side?" A respectful lot were we.

The ceremony was really cool. There was a formal motion made to the judge, and then lots of swearing (of the oath variety) and then clapping and pictures. It was a very special day.

So, many congrats to YooperTuna Esquire. May you do all those things you promised to do, and don't do all those things you promised not to do. Thanks for inviting me to

I was proud to be one of the Super Friends.

You forgot to mention the best part "malice and lucre". Filthy lucre.
