Ezra And The Private Dick

I'm just guessing here, Ezra, but I imagine the technical term for the "Private Investigator" that visited your parents place is a "process server" (ie a person who serves (delivers) legal papers in lawsuits, either as a profession or as a government official). And I am just guessing, but I imagine the reason he visited your folks on behalf of Giacomo Vigna* is because whois gives your folks' address in the contact information for your website.

As for the rest...well...I'm surprised you didn't portray the guy as flying in on bat wings and chewing the head off the family pet.

(Please let me know if anything in the above is incorrect.)

* Giacomo Vigna is a lawyer for the CHRC.

What the hell? I can't make head nor tails out of this anymore. Is there anyone who isn't going after Ezra "Lord of the Wingnuts" Levant?

Vigna is Warman's lawyer. Lawyers upon lawyers.

Meta-jurisprudence. What fun.

After the revolution/Rapture we'll have to gather our wits about us and devise a justice system that is, first and foremost, accessible to the people who are being directly subjected to its administration in order to prevent the development of this priestly class the members of which, if not insane to begin with, go completely berzerk eventually.

...and I say that out of concern for the lawyers themselves, who are, on some level, human beings after all.

I think that Vigna is the Commissions lawyer, not Warman's.

I realize this is off topic what with the obssession with Levant and Lemire on this site, but are you ever going to discuss the situation involving Mubin Shaikh or any other of the accused "Toronto 18" BCL?

That subject is not taboo, is it?

bigcitylib said...

Good obsessions need no explanation.

Unknown said...

Obsession or attraction BCL? :)

Yeah, BCL. It's not like there's a world of information at our fingertips or anything.

Man, it never fails. I can still come over here for a good laugh. At least you guys are stubborn. What a lot of mumbo jumbo. Ezra has the right attitude. HRCs need to be ridiculed and defied at every turn. Never to be taken seriously. I hope he and Macleans win in the Supreme Court. The HRCs did it to themselves by taking on the most basic right of all.
