According to the Miami Herald, Trump National stiffs a small business by refusing payment for the full amount of the paint contract because it has “paid enough”.

In this instance, Donald Trump was penny wise and pound foolish.  Why not just pay the $34,863? Now he owes nearly 10 times the amount. Here's why: Trump has pulled the same stunt on other contractors, but not all small businesses have the funds to take him to court. In this instance the attorneys took the case with the agreement that they would not get paid if they lost.
Circuit Court Judge Jorge Cueto, presiding over a lawsuit related to unpaid bills brought by a local paint store against the Trump National Doral Miami golf resort, ordered the billionaire politician’s company to pay the Doral-based mom-and-pop shop nearly $300,000 in attorney’s fees.

All because, according to the lawsuit, Trump allegedly tried to stiff The Paint Spot on its last payment of $34,863 on a $200,000 contract for paint used in the renovation of the home of golf’s famed Blue Monster two years ago.
Note that the judge is Latino, but he is of Cuban descent, so perhaps Trump will not demand that he recuse himself from the case, as he did for Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is of Mexican descent.

Today,  the 1,000,000th visit to Wounded Bird was recorded on my counter. Actually, I lost a couple of days when the counter stopped working, so the total was reached a couple of days ago, but I have no record, so today is the big day.  My one millionth visit was from Pawtucket, Rhode Island at 13:45:42.  Congratulations for making my day, visitor from Pawtucket.

This post is No. 6485.  My first post was on January 22, 2007.  I never dreamed Wounded Bird would still be running after five and a half years, nor did I ever believe I'd reach a total of 1,000,000 visits.

Thanks to everyone who visits, and thanks to all who take the time to leave a comment.  Without the encouragement, I would not still be blogging.
