Letter to the Editor or Editorial Submission – So Much Ink, So Much Blood – 9/10/18  kra At least twice a month I see an article or an editorial calling for “the” way to end the crazy, deadly shootings on city streets. The latest piece called for the clergy to become more involved in high crime areas. Before that it was “revive the street crimes unit” of the police department. And before that it was calls for...

I have been fortunate to have been quite successful in all of my chosen professions… law, teaching, business broker, entrepreneur, and mentor to many.  Learned a lot, made some mistakes … such is life. I list here some suggestions which are not merely “feel good” slogans or platitudes, but which actually can help most people succeed … if they keep them in mind. Know what you are doing.

My friend Sam Chick knows his business. He owns a first class store in Downtown Dover, DE, and it is anything but a typical “head shop”.

The email I just received from a FB* friend of mine, R,  truly “made my day” …. and it is only 12:45 A M so far! We shall call his son S, and he is the first person I have actually heard benefit from RDAP by getting an early release [he is not out yet but almost certainly will be released sooner thanks to RDAP]. That doesn’t surprise me because although I deal with inmates’ families every day, the federal prisoners...

This is an interesting report on all states by The Cato Institute. Of most interest to me, of course, are the criminal justice issues. I am sending this to Kathleen Jennings, whom I expect to be our next A G, highlighting this part: “… the state’s civil asset forfeiture law is tied for worst in the country, with few protections for innocent owners. Eliminate or significantly limit civil asset forfeiture, consistent with reform...
