“Duval Clerk of Courts Ronnie Fussell said none of the clerks felt comfortable with performing gay marriages.”
I have an idea. Fire the staff members who do not want to do their jobs and replace them with people who can be professional whatever their personal beliefs!
Adventure Lawyer’s cocktail party factoid of the day:
Timor-Leste, which is a tiny country on the otherwise former Portuguese colony island of Timor, is commonly translated as East Timor. This, however, is a misnomer.
While people seem pleased to translate the “Leste,” which is both Indonesian and Malay for “East,” they for some reason forget to translate the Portuguese part of the country’s name. “Timor” also translates as “East!”
So who wants to join me on a journey to the island of “East” to visit the country “East-East?”
Probably no one! Though it has gotten better, it is not really a politically stable place.
Happy New Year and thank you for the 20,000 hits in 2014! I appreciate you more than you know!
