Judge Biggers schedules April hearing on Zach Scruggs’ Motion to Vacate

Patsy Brumfield broke the story on NEMS360.com – although I doubt she wants credit for the typo indicating the hearing was set for August and not April.

SLABBED will take a pass; check back with NEMS360 a little later; and rely on Judge Biggers’ order for the details:

Upon due consideration, the court is of the opinion that all issues involved in said motion should be heard. The court will receive evidence if requested.

It is, therefore, ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that the parties shall appear for a hearing on movant’s motion on Monday, April 25, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 3 West of the United States Courthouse in Oxford, Mississippi.

Short – and, in this case, “sweet”.

Just a thought – How big is the average mailbox in Jefferson Parish?

Yeah, it’s a slow news day on the slab –  probably, better stated as quiet before the next news storm.  However, it’s a good day to pick up the thought I dropped while covering the birchers so-called volley in the “Tournament of Trash“:

Is the average mailbox in Jefferson Parish large enough to hold a poster?

Unlike our Twice Right AG, I’ve been (ahem) twice wrong – the two River Birch epistles-to-the-voters of Jefferson Parish were not printed on an 5.5″x8.5″ card, as I guessed.

Instead, both were unfolded, full-size 8.5″x11″ posters – in other words, larger than a  residential mailbox meeting USPS standards!

  • Curb-size boxes are a standard 8.75″H x 6.5″W
  • Mail slots are a standard 2.25″H x 7.25″W

The standard size of a unit in the multi-unit mailbox found at most residential apartment complexes is 5″H x 4″W – the same width of typical black metal residential mailbox by my front door.

Oops!  IMO, the size issue means the only certain result of the birchers’ effort to trash Waste Management was more trash for Waste Management to pick up!

Just a thought!

h/t  thoughtful reader for providing SLABBED with a copy of latest poster (below) – abundant evidence the birchers need a new graphic designer in addition to the already evident need for a new interior designer! Continue reading “Just a thought – How big is the average mailbox in Jefferson Parish?”
