the fiddy defense

Okay, I admit it. I was too busy reading about the fact that Mark Prior is out for the season to actually pay attention to most of my Evidence class today.

The one thing I manage to overhear, though, is a fact pattern involving a statement a deceased declarant made after getting taken to the hospital with six gunshot wounds. My professor asks the class if anyone can counter the dying declaration hearsay exception.

So I pipe up with this: "Well, if 50 Cent can get shot, like, eight times and survive, this guy can get shot six times and think he'll survive."

Suddenly, I don't look so stupid for reading celebrity gossip blogs instead of studying, do I?

(You know what? Don't answer that.)

That comment was FANTASTIC! Helped ease the tension that was building because no one knew the answers to the questions! Pass/fail will be popular in that class!

Don't waste a pass-fail. Mullen is an easy A!
