It’s Friday …

I am sickened and disgusted by the entire Kavanaugh fiasco.Β  When I am able to stop spouting expletives and threatening to throw people off that bridge I’ve been trying to sell, I will have plenty to say about the whole bloody mess.Β  But, since today is Friday and the sun is shining (at least where I am it is), then I am keeping it clean and simple.

I came across a short video clip yesterday of a judge in Providence, Rhode Island, administering justice.Β  His name is Judge Frank Caprio, and while I never heard of him before yesterday, I adore this judge!Β  There is a website with a series of his videos, and they are well worth watching, but for today I wanted to share this one in particular, for it is so funny, and yet at the same time uplifting.

According to Caprio’s website, Caught in Providence

judge caprio-2Judge Frank Caprio is the Chief Municipal Judge in Providence, Rhode Island and former Chairman of the Rhode Island Board of Governors. He was appointed in 1985, and has been re-appointed six times by the mayor of Providence and the Providence City Council.

All of the cases and people are real.Β Those who step in front of him have a little fun with the cameras, but Judge Caprio makes it clear that he is there to do his job.

And that’s all I’ve got to say for today … well, actually I have plenty more to say, but I shall keep it to myself until tomorrow.Β  Have a great weekend, my dear friends!

  1. Tears in my eyes. That’s a judge.
    I think the effect of the Kavanaugh hearing was almost as bad as hearing the Brexit result. You know how bad that was for me. Make this your Mama Mia weekend. Drink some wine, eat pizza, raise a glass to me and I’ll do the same, come back to the misery full of song and merriment!


    • We need hundreds, nay … thousands more judges like him! I do remember how Brexit was for you and also a few other UK friends, and the Trump fiasco, now the Kavanaugh fiasco … has the whole bloomin’ world gone nuts??? πŸ™ƒ I may just do that … well, I already ate some pizza that Miss Goose brought home from the fall festival, so now all that remains is the wine and Mama Mia! I will certainly raise a glass to you, my dear friend, and will sense the one you raise to me. I can’t promise the song & merriment part, but I will give it my best shot!

  2. It is a small world indeed, and Rhode Island is but a very small part of it…but, Judge Frank Caprio has just made R.I. appear much larger. I was aware of our locally shown “Caught in Providence” becoming a viral hit some time ago. It was in the pages of this Wednesday’s Providence Journal that I read of its going into national syndication with Debmar-Mercury on Sept. 24th. In the article, the 81 yr. old Judge Caprio is quoted as saying : “The institutions of government can be fair, understanding, compassionate and just. That is really the focus of ‘Caught in Providence’.” Judge Caprio’s “Grandfatherly brand of justice” is the sort far more judges should practice. Rhode Island is proud of this man, a legend in his own time. Thank-you!

    • You too, Larry! I hate to be a wet blanket, but I think Flake & Murkowski are paying lip service and at the end of the day they will vote to confirm anyway. I know … I’m too cynical these days. Sigh. Have a great weekend, my friend!

  3. The conservative element of society wants someone with the same mentality as they on the Supreme Court in order to protect their ideology and perhaps impose that ideology on others, the same reason they voted for Trump for president…. the character of the individual means nothing to them, as long as they get what they want… πŸ™‚

    You and yours have a wonderful weekend filled with happiness… πŸ™‚

    A wee bit of the Irish for ya… πŸ™‚

    May love and laughter light your days,
    and warm your heart and home.
    May good and faithful friends be yours,
    wherever you may roam.
    May peace and plenty bless your world
    with joy that long endures.
    May all life’s passing seasons
    bring the best to you and yours!
