Help Needed

The following information was brought to my attention by my good friend (and Defense Czar of Provocation) Robert Fickman regarding the family of an Assistant District Attorney who needs some help from our CJC family. Robb writes:

Josh Reiss is a young Assistant District Attorney. He is married and has two small children.

Sadly his wife Ahn has a blood disease (MDS) which will require a stem cell transplant in order to save her life.

A blood drive in search of a suitable donor is ongoing.

The drive will be at the Courthouse, (on the 2nd floor) on Friday the 26, from 11 until 2pm.

Members of the DA's office, court staff and defense lawyers will all giving blood to try to find a suitable donor. Please come by. You may save a life.

This young lawyer and his family need all of us to kick in and do what we can. The odds are greater that a suitable match will be found in the Vietnamese-American or the Asian-American Community. So if you know anyone from the community please encourage them to participate. No matter what you have planned,

I am sure we can all agree that there is nothing more important than trying to help save a young mother's life.

As an added bonus, Brother Fickman has sworn that he will shave his hair into a Mohawk if he gets 300 Defense Attorneys to participate.

I'm in.

You should have them contact Dal Fenton. He's primarily a civil plaintiff's lawyer, but he's in big with the local Vietnamese population.

All you have to do in order to be registered with the bone marrow donor program is fill out some paperwork and give a spit swab (like the kind they use for dna). That's it.

Mr. Newman, maybe you and Pat should become friends and thus end this blog? Ms. Pat, The Shah of Harris County, could then completely turn the office into the Bataan Death march. Keep up the good work. I voted for her and every day I regret it. Not only for her being her, but for the people she put in management positions. Im sorry Republicans but I can not vote for her ever again. Even if it means I have to be vote Democrat. Stand up people for the right thing. Not this Emperor or her storm troopers.
