a good freaking candidate

Turns out I'm not just a good candidate for civil and other such disputes in the city of my residence, but the good old United States District Court, Eastern District of Virginia thinks they might want me, too.

Try not to back into the neighbor's car.
Try not to yell at anyone.
Try not to listen when yelled at.

Here's hoping...
