Will did do awesome, and just confirms his substance and moral compass to those who don't know him. And those of us that do, no surprise he took this on!!

Welcome aboard, and don't go back to the Jeep cave- we can be gentle...
Thanks Dale!!

Holy crap that is incredible! You almost never hear of this kind of thing ending up right. Kudos to Will for fighting the good fight and congrats to all who were involved in the process, especially those getting their vehicles back! Good things do happen!!

Should be a penny auction type of setup where you don't think you are giving much to the cause but end up having to sell your D to pay your debts.

Thanks guys, I'm truly flattered!

Funny enough, while my kids and I were out for a walk over at my family farm this afternoon my 10-year old daughter snapped this photo of me standing in front of my one of my brother Matt's Defenders. Note the t-shirt!

And.....the fun continues! I've received word that a senior correspondent and crew from Fox News Channel is on its way up from Atlanta to interview me and a couple of my clients. Apparently, settling our case with the federal government is kind of a big deal.........

I can't think of any other example that better illustrates big government out of control and reaching too far.

Next comes the book deal.

Then a movie about you.

Academy Award. Oh wait. I'm getting way ahead here.

But you will have plenty of supporting actors. No need to interview for roles.

Did I mention your picture on cereal boxes all over America.

Nice. Wait, you got another Defender?

I sure hope Fox TV would run that story of a Republican in the White House.

I think Julia Roberts should play the part of Will. Maybe someone younger.

Fox has a role just like MSNBC. Without Fox, there would be nothing but liberal views. Are you a fan of a one party democracy?

I've never heard Maddow advocate small government in her spin. I'd be interested to see what position she would take on this issue.

We agree! That why I like broadcast news like NBC! I can trust in Brian Williams!
