Why else would our beleaguered hero be thinking about a switcheroo from his current lawyer to an insider-deal-maker like >>> Artie with an "A" ?????
Let's see which of the criminal-defense-guys is standing up for Mr. Luthmann after Thursday --- my little birdie tells me it's one of our local favorites >>> good old Arthur Aidala
What does this mean in the big picture ?????
As Soupie Sales used to say, ".... Well, I'll tell you Gladys !!!!!"
It means that Luthmann has been convinced by somebody very close to him that he needs to make a deal --- fast --- very very fast. Maybe, that's because the somebody very close to Mr. Luthmann felt very in the cross-hairs and under the gun, HERSELF.
Imagine if you will both HERSELF and HIMSELF facing trials for basically the same crimes --- not a pretty sight, is it !!!!!
So out of the blue, this "Unlucky Dick" looks like he's going to hire a very-hooked-up-to-his-nemesis-Dennis-Quirk-lawyer, Artie Aidala.....
Now here's the rub --- what in the world could Richard Luthmann offer as his part of any deal ????? THE MIND BOGGLES !!!!!
As Sachmo used sing, ".... And I think to myself... What a wonderful world.... Yes, I think to myself... What a wonderful world --- Ohhhh, YEAH !!!!!"
