Lunch is Almost Over

It’s nearly 1:00PM. The lawyers are filing in. People are standing and talking to each other. The mood is genial, but soon we get to hear how on God’s green earth the proponents of Prop. 8 can claim that it’s somehow okay to use the constitution to discriminate against an entire class of people. I would say I cannot wait, but I just saw Anthony Pugno, the general counsel for the oxymoronic Protect Marriage walk by. I nodded at him reflexively, which I guess is what you do, but he’s running for office as I said this morning.

    That’s okay. AT least you did not have to talk to him. When I have a conversation with people, I prefer to do so with people who actually have more between their ears than dead air space or a vacuum.

    I thought it was Andy Pugno?

    Hey a favor if you someone will. What is the correct pronunciation of Pugno’s name? It it PUG-NO or Pyunyo?

      I recall someone saying it was more like the second. He’s running for state office. There’s probably a news clip somewhere with audio of his name.
