Legal shenanigans in the military

The blurb at the end of this column mentions that I was a lawyer in the Marine Corps. It was a bazillion years ago now, but I still remember some stories. I was watching a crime show on TV and the defendant balked at doing something for his lawyer. The same thing had happened to me. I was defending a Marine and I needed to collect some information for his case. If you were facing trial by court-martial, your major responsibility was assisting your attorney. He wasn’t particularly interested in helping until I said, “You’re the one going to the brig, not me. If you have something more important to do, just let me know.” If you have friends who are police officers, then you’ve heard stories about how dumb some criminals can be. They almost catch themselves. I was defending someone who had been arrested for theft after breaking into an office. The MPs said to him, “We have your boot prints from outside the window.” To which he replied, “No you don’t, because I wasn’t wearing any boots when I did it.” There…

My take on celebrities

Simply by watching the news for many years I have learned that celebrities occasionally have great difficulty handling their enormous popularity. I’m thinking of Robin Williams, Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley and Micheal Jackson. As we all know, they have all traveled from remarkable success to their end. We learned they either committed  suicide, overdosed on drugs, got obese or even “allegedly” had improper conduct with little boys. I think most Americans have a difficult time trying to figure out how and why these huge talents took the directions they did. Marlon Brando himself wound up depressed and obese. His friend and co-star Karl Malden, a friend of mine, shared some of the details of this Godfather’s experiences with me. Many years ago actor William Shatner of “Star Trek” and I shared a very unpleasant afternoon. I was the President and CEO of the California Broadcasters Association. I was looking forward to meeting Mr. Shatner because it was my task to induct celebrities like him into the CBA’s Hall of Fame. When I greeted him at the Double Tree Hotel in Monterey he actually looked unkept.…

Is everybody ‘all over America’ ready to see 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo?

SANTA CLARA — Jimmy Garoppolo obviously is excited for his comeback’s launch party this Sunday in the 49ers season opener at Tampa. He’s not the only one. “Everybody is,” right tackle Mike McGlinchey said Wednesday. “Not just here, but everybody all over America is ready to see what Jimmy can do. “We expect nothing but great things from him this week.” San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (10), left, tries to find a receiver while Mike McGlinchey (69), center, blocks Dallas Cowboys’ Antwaun Woods (64), right, in the first quarter of their preseason NFL game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Thursday, Aug. 9, 2018. (Randy Vazquez/ Bay Area News Group) Such are the expectations Garoppolo gladly is embracing, nearly a year after a season-ending ligament tear in his left knee, an injury he swears he forgot about by spring practices. “It’s kind of one of those things you put out of your head,” Garoppolo said. “I have so many other things to worry about that you can’t really be worrying about that all the time.” At Wednesday’s practice, Garoppolo looked as focused…

How prospect Jaylin Davis’ arrival impacts Giants plans in the outfield

ST. LOUIS — An already crowded Giants outfield welcomed a new arrival Wednesday in St. Louis. Fewer than 24 hours after receiving word that he would be headed to the big leagues, power-hitting prospect Jaylin Davis is starting in right field and batting seventh for a slumping Giants offense. “It almost doesn’t feel real,” Davis said. Davis thought he’d spend Wednesday at Raley Field in Sacramento for the Triple-A River Cats’ first playoff game, but he received a surprise call from a number with an Oregon area code late Tuesday evening. The number belonged to River Cats manager Dave Brundage, who joked around before informing Davis he would soon be making his MLB debut. It was past midnight on the east coast when Davis heard the news, but he kept the phone in his hand and immediately dialed his mom in North Carolina anyway. “She started crying a little when I first told her,” Davis said. “At first she thought something was wrong because it was late back home.” Davis, 25, was one of three prospects acquired by the Giants in a July 31 trade…
