    Dear Old Time Counsel-Net Friend,

    Thanks for your kind comments and
    interest! If you will e-mail me at, I'll be glad
    to discuss my situation and retirement
    with you. As they say, no good deed will
    go unpunished and a man will never forgive
    you for the wrong he does you--nor a woman
    either. (Humor intended!) The powers that
    be came after me for telling the truth; and
    to buy time to shut down my practice, I
    agreed to resign and retire from law
    practice. Long story, but I can share more
    of it with you through e-mail correspondence.
    I'm working right now on making my "come back".
    As they say, "You can't keep a good man down!"
    Again, thanks for your kind comments and


    Hardy Parkerson, J.D.
