Well, I suppose I should write something to get this weblog started. Otherwise someone might wind up here and wonder what the heck is going on. He's got a neat title, but no content, other than that profile. Can't have that,can we?
So, why "Mister District Attorney" aka misterda? It says right up there on top that I'm an assistant prosecutor, not an assistant DA. Well, as Robert Traver, another prosecuting attorney, said, introducing his collection of short stores Small Town DA, he used the term DA because that's the more familiar title, across the United States. Because of that familiarity, It sort of covers us all, the prosecuting attorneys, the state's attorneys, the county solicitors, the city attorneys, the township attorneys, and, of course, the district attorneys.
So, why a weblog, anyway? Because I've had the itch to do something like this for a while. Because Blogger enticed me with its ease of set up and maintenance. Because there are so few prosecutors (if any) doing weblogs. More defense attorneys than you can shake a stick at, darn few (none I've found, anyway) prosecutors. Prosecutors can be fun and amusing, too. Plus, we've got these great white hats. . . .
If I'm wrong, and the Internet woods are crawling with APAs, ADAs, etc., posting away, will someone let me know?
