From Celeste Higgins

I am happy to announce Dan Ricker will be the second speaker in the FBA's Luncheon Series.
Mr. Ricker is the publisher and editor of Watchdog Review and a local contributor to The Miami Herald, WLRN Radio and WLRN TV. Mr. Ricker gave up a life of wealth and leisure to be the community's eyes and ears in local government. He provides us with neutral and nonpartisan information about our elected officials.
As "all politics is local politics" and local politics affects us all, I'm sure Mr. Ricker will provide us with great insight to that part of our government we are not always able to observe first-hand.
You may have heard that our first speaker was Beth Wilkinson, former General Counsel of Fannie Mae. She provided us with a fascinating view from within the financial markets and mortgage crisis. Our second speaker is going to be just as interesting.

This month's speaker should prove to provide a very interesting presentation. It will be held Wednesday, Dec. 10th at noon at the Bankers Club. Please RSVP with Lourdes Fernandez at 305-523-5771.
Thank you,
Celeste S. Higgins, President
Federal Bar Association

Did you investigate to see if your guest got a low interest loan from Countywide before inviting her? I understand the "girls club" at Fannie Mae has serious questions to answer to Congress ,,, and maybe, if there is justice for all, a Federal Grand Jury,

I believe handcuffs are in order.

Anonymous at 6:36, if you don't know Celeste Higgins, then you don't know the Federal courts. Plus, she is very hot.

Extreme MILF.

Where can I get a picture of this Celeste Higgins? (I understand looking at a woman for 10 minutes is like 40 minutes of aerobic cariac workout). Us older guys like 'em too.

Get your bike out and lets go for a ride. It's invigorating, and in the end cheaper than a beautiful woman (no offense meant to now oft discussed Ms. Higgins. I have no idea how demanding she is.) Yes you get the cardio workout with the dame, but you get the agita too.

6:36: Celest Higgins is with the federal public defender's office.

10:42: have you ever heard of a little thing called a civil action? those of us that practice in federal court but have nothing to do with the criminal side of it have no reason to know who Celeste Higgins is.

Finally, the Rumpole character writes something which reflects wisdom and experience that comes with age. Forget all the legal crap.

She's a great attorney and a great person. Not a bad singer, either.

I can't imagine Dan Ricker giving an engaging speech. He is among the most taciturn and curmudgeonly persons I've met in SoFla.

Here's hoping....
