Former Albany, New York, attorney Leonard Krouner, now living in San Diego, this month was turned down in his attempt to win back his New York law license. On February 6, the Appellate Division of the New York Supreme Court turned down his second bid for reinstatement.

In 2003, he pleaded guilty to insurance fraud, grand larceny, and fraudulent Workers Compensation law practice, according to the Albany Times Union. His law practice had raked in $150,000 from such practices.

Earlier, Krouner had been turned down by the San Diego superior court and the appellate court in his bid to get a California real estate license.

Donny -we don't have that much time to be an evolved species.

shirleyberan: We evolved just like all species did. But it did take some time. Best, Don Bauder

There ought to be laws in California to deter convicted felons from moving to the state. Felons who move to California should not be able to obtain drivers licenses. Many other harassment laws are needed to make the lives of felons hell so they don't come here. That's why were running out of water. Krouner is taking my water while his water is running down the Hudson river.

Hell...if you did this, half of all the CEO's and Management Consultants would have to leave----not to mention 90% of all the politicians.

Burwell: I don't believe your plan would get past the state's judges, or the U.S. Supreme Court. I am trying to think of a famous felon who would be banned from being in California under your plan. I can't think of one. Maybe somebody else can. Best, Don Bauder

Seems Burwell wants secession for California. Fine with me, maybe we can evolve a little faster. I have Darwin's book too Don. We can kick the lawyers out while we improve things.

shirleyberan: We evolved from primates. Lawyers evolved from frigatebirds, which divebomb other birds and steal the fish they have in their mouths. Best, Don Bauder
