The Bad Matt strikes again

Some of you may remember the Bad Matt from my stay in Sioux City, Iowa. Although generally a horrible person, he is a brilliant law clerk for a very distinguished Iowa senior district judge. I posted about his fatal attraction to Pabst Blue Ribbon, and provided a photo of the stash the Good Matt and I discovered in the Bad Matt’s office. Yesterday, via UPS, I received from Bad Matt a spongy Pabst Blue Ribbon hat. Bad Matt’s note indicated that when I went bald from the chemo, I should wear the hat to protect my noggin.

I was shocked. The Bad Matt had played cruel jokes on me when I was a stranger in that strange land we know as Sioux City, Iowa. It never occurred to me that a truly demented Pabst devotee could have a soft spot.

Thank you, Bad Matt. (What goes around comes around.)

In my chambers near my conference table sits my bust of Lincoln (given to me by Chris Cook, a really good lawyer and even better artist) now wearing my new Pabst Blue Ribbon hat given to me by the bad Matt. Don't be distracted by the "dear leader" bobblehead. The law clerks pray to that one.

The good Matt and the bad Matt

I am still in Sioux land. I have been amazed at two brilliant law clerks here. Both are named Matt. But there is a problem.

The good Matt is hard working and serious. The bad Matt is, well, bad, He loves PBR beer. He just cannot get enough of it. This morning we snuck into his office to see what fuels the bad Matt’s habit of playing cruel jokes on visiting judges who suffer from blood clots.  We were all horrified at what we found.
