The Clarion-Ledger is reporting that President Obama nominated Jackson attorney Greg Davis to become U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi:

President Barack Obama has nominated a Jackson lawyer as the next U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Mississippi.

Gregory Davis is a member of the law firm Davis, Goss & Williams PLLC, which he co-founded.

Davis graduated from Mississippi State University in 1984 and Tulane University School of Law in 1987.

If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Davis will succeed Dunn Lampton, who retired. First Assistant U.S. Attorney John Dowdy Jr. has been the office’s interim leader since January. 

President Obama [a.k.a. The Tortoise] nominated Davis nearly a full year after his name first surfaced as a candidate for the position.

My Take:

Finally, one of my own people gets nominated to an important federal position. That’s right. Davis is……..a golfer.

When Davis walks into the federal courthouse, the U.S. Marshals will say: “now there goes a man who knows the humiliation, degradation, frustration, anger, and total injustice of…..slicing a ball into the drink on 18 with the match on the line.” 

Davis is a shining beacon for golfers everywhere that there is hope for overcoming that devilish past time.

    “The Tortoise” just doesn’t flow and violates previously recognzied rules of nicknames. How about “The Sloth” or “The Slug.”
