Is Ohama?

It’s been nearly four (count ’em, four) years since I referred to Saul Steinberg’s celebrated New Yorker cover, which showed our N’Yawk insular view of America. See my blogpost “Everything West of the Hudson Is Kansas,” 7/5/17.

While ex-Ch J L Paige (“Iron Fist”) Marvel, a native of the Old Line State, might be considered a Right Coaster, present Ch J Maurice B (“Mighty Mo”) Foley is, according his biography on the Tax Court website, a Prairie Stater by birth.

So I was surprised to see that he set Mike Garber, Docket No. 7942-21, filed 5/21/21, down for trial thus: “Ohama, NE is designated as the place of trial in this case.” Order, at p. 1.

Like many a pro se, Mike didn’t fill in the place-of-trial Form 5 when he petitioned.  

Maybe when one becomes Chief Judge, and spends one’s working life in The City of the Stateless, everything west of the Potomac is Ohama.
