Never Give Up. Never Surrender.



In the movie Galaxy Quest, Tim Allen played an actor on a science fiction television series whose motto was "Never give up. Never surrender". I believe that someone who I have blogged about in the past has taken this motto to heart.

Roy L. Pearson, Jr is back. Do you remember Roy? He was the judge who sued a dry cleaner for $64 million because he claimed they lost his pants. Of course he lost that suit. When I wrote about him last August he was suing to get his job as a judge back. He lost that one but he has filed an appeal for that dismissal. His statement runs 65 pages and as I understand it is very rambling. Not surprising considering his claims for the pants. I'll give him credit for persistence, but there comes a time to call it quits. Hopefully after this Roy will catch on. The last time I wrote about him I compared him with the Black Knight from Monty Python And The Holy Grail. Here is that scene.

WC Fields once said, "If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There's no use being a damn fool about it."

That is a good quote. Another saying that could apply here is it is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought of as a fool, then to open it and prove it.

'Tis but a flesh wound - denial must be a part of this guy's daily life.

I keep thinking that at some point he will realize how ridiculous it all sounds, but I think pigs will fly first.
