There will be a ceremony in the 228th District Court today at 2:00 p.m. as Judge Marc Carter and the dedicated attorneys who have donated their time to the Veterans' Court celebrate the successful completion of pre-trial diversions by fifteen members of its starting class. As part of the Veteran's Court, defense attorney Pat "Sumo Jesus" McCann challenged the Veterans by swearing he would allow his head to be shaved should they successfully complete their pre-trial diversions.
And they did.
So, a big congratulations to the Veterans who helped make this project a big success, as well as to Judge Carter, Pat, Shannon Davis of the D.A.'s Office and all the other attorneys who have made this project possible.
And on a sad note, we bid a fond farewell to the flowing locks of hair that belong to Mr. McCann for only a few hours more. As a veteran of hair loss, I will be there to support you in the days to come, my friend.
I, for one, will remember you like this:
Even though, when this is all over, I'm pretty sure you will more closely resemble this.
