I was watching an old UK documentary on the late John Z. De Lorean. In it, he successfully defended himself against the FBI for having been found with a briefcase full of cocaine, and then asked the public for money for his defence fund. When Googling “defense fund” in American English, there are some six million references; even with the proper spelling Google comes up with 274,000. Question: if that is the case, then why are they not adopted in New Zealand, where there is a strong social conscience and certainly enough people putting their hands up over things we believe in? When I think about it, since I get involved in several cases each quarter, some people out there deserve one, but no one ever thinks of setting one up. Posted by Jack Yan, 15:53

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
