    Betty Jo,

    My choice would depend upon the strength of my case. The weaker it is, the more likely I'd go with someone like Johnnie (not that I could afford him).

    An honest lawyer (and I count the gentlemen you mentioned in that number) is a luxury that only an innocent man can afford.

    Yours truly,
    Dave Morefield

    Re: Attention Louisville Area Bourbon Drinkers

    First, a disclaimer: I think the no-women policy is silly, counterproductive and certainly impolitic.
    That said, now the Devil's Advocate part:
    This really isn't any different than, say, Augusta National Golf Club excluding women members. NOW can protest, but they have no standing to change it because Augusta is an entirely private institution. And the Constitution is a set of rules for the government's behavior, not private institutions' behavior.
    For example, it amazes me sometimes to realize how many people bandy about "First-Amendment rights" without realizing the First Amendement only applies to the government (as in, "Congress shall make no law..."). In my newspaper career, there were numerous times when an editor or publisher told me I could not or must write about this or that. Now, I could have cited "freedom of the press" and written what I wanted, but I would have found out quickly just who owned that particular 'free' press. On the other hand, I've had those same editors and publishers, in my defense, laugh in the face of some politico or government figure who didn't like what I'd written. "Congress shall make no law...", but private groups and companies can pretty much make their own rules.

    jace,
    Yepper, it's I think it's too.
    'Course, I guess we don't really know what they are trying to accomplish. Whatever it is, it obviously doesn't involve women... Maybe they'll follow this survey with a similar one for women (ya, right... ).

    Tim is right...
    I would have found out quickly just who owned that particular 'free' press
    When in doubt, follow the money. Or, in Bourbonia...
    They who have the Bourbon, make the rules...

    In this case, I would dearly love to know who is behind this survey. So, I can quit drinking their Bourbon.

    If I were local, I would OFFER a better deal. I'll do it for $50... would you believe $25, how about $10?...

    Re: Attention Louisville Area Bourbon Drinkers

    Is the joke on us, or just me? Has any one heard back from these people? The lady said they had a heavy response but someone would contact me by the end of the week. I must have missed the call, but wait I have an answering machine, I guess it missed it too!

    Re: Attention Louisville Area Bourbon Drinkers

    I got a call, but I was in Florida and the 800 number was restricted to in-state. I tried again when I got back and they had all they needed. This is the second time I missed out on one of these. They had one in Lexington and the voice sounded familiar. I was traveling to NJ that week.

    I just got through on the local number and the survey was conducted last week sometime. The person who answered the phone said, "Your in our database for future surveys of this type."
