Digestion is 9/10’s of the law


Blah, blah, blah. Usual excuses. In my defense, I have warned you that updates will be a bit spotty for a while longer. Internet connectivity has been an issue all summer. No, I’m not on some deserted island, alas. I wish.

Since I was a kid, I’ve never fully understood that old saying, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.” I mean, how many laws are out there that we don’t know we’re breaking? The answer would probably shock us. And while we’re on legal bromides, what about the one from which today’s title is taken, “Possession is 9/10’s of the law?” Does that mean that if a burglar pillages your home, you have a 1 in 10 chance of regaining your stuff based on the fact he/she now has it? Probably best not to answer that one, either.
