At first, I assumed he was just another Aldermanic candidate. This assumption lead to other questions like, “What is an alderman?” and “How do I get one of my own?”
Something about the way that Carter’s eyes caught mine this morning stuck with me. I was sick of playing hard to get. I needed more, so I looked him up.
Here is what I learned:
1. Carter’s full name is Carter Mario.
-I assume he introduces himself with some cool middle initial and tag line like “Carter P. Mario, lets make justice happen”, but I guess I will just have to wait to find out until he and I grab lunch sometime (see point 4).
2. He is an injury lawyer and covers everything from colonoscopies gone awry to wrongful deaths.
-This is a guy who is not afraid to get his hands dirty. Word on the street is that he’ll be representing the defendant in the poopgate scandal. I wonder how he beat out the good people over at Pinsky Law for that job.
3. “Get Carter” is also the title of a 1971 film staring Michael Caine.
-I assume they borrowed the title because of the fact that Carter and a 70s Michael Caine look exactly alike, and, of course, because they both seek justice.
4. Carter is the kind of guy you want to have on your speed dial. He’ll be there for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. He might even make you his signature dish: linguini with clam sauce. . How’s that for getting Carter?
Now that I finally Got Carter, I dare you look me in the eye and tell me you don’t want to Get Carter.
