A Tuscaloosa, Alabama lady lawyer posted this below yesterday. The Hugh Culverhouse and related emails with Alabama School of Law officials made for interesting reading. When I checked back last night, my comment was not showing. Buck is active in Alabama politics and the Democratic Party.
On a very different front, I saw "Rocketman" the other day. Shazam! I didn't know anything about Elton John, other than he is a superstar performer, and is gay. I learned from the film that he also is a superstar music writer, is beyond gifted on the piano, and during his rise to fame fucked everything and used every known drug, including booze, to the max. The film lays it all bare, including his terrible childhood, gender identity struggles, disappointments in love with women and men, betrayals by lovers, and descent into booze and drug hell, and how he came back from the dead to the living. Perhaps some day, the University of Alabama School of Law will enjoy a similar soul-search-retrieval.
Here are Culverhouse's emails with UA officials trying to bully them into hiring and firing who he wants hired and fired, demeaning them and reminding them that none of them are prepared to deal with someone as rich, and powerful as he is. It also shows an email from Joe Espy (good democrat) on May 25 saying they need to give him his money back and be done with him. This guy is such a prick. I can't believe they put up with him as long as they did.
