CAVC–ATILANO v. DENIS THE MENACE-BABY YOU CAN DRIVE MY CAR

In this business, the legal bitchslaps Veterans endure far outweigh the beneficial attaboys at the Board, the Court and Fed Circus. While I wholeheartedly welcome the judicial overview accorded us (finally) in 1989, it was a long time coming considering … Continue reading

FALL NOVA–WE’RE ON A MISSION FROM GOD

WELCOME TO ASKNOD.COM

Yeppers. You read that correctly. For over a decade, I’ve tried to hornswoggle that German domain squatter into coughing up asknod.com. He finally relented after an extended bargaining session. I’ll tell you he drove a hard bargain. GoDaddy© locked it … Continue reading

THE HLR PUNJI PIT–SUCKING IN THE DRO POINT (WO)MAN
