Re-Apprenticed? 

Memphis lawyer Bren Olswanger, who achieved some national name recognition last year as a long-running player on Donald Trumps’s TV show The Apprentice, now wants to try a different challenge. He filed this week as a candidate for the General Sessions Criminal Court judgeship held by incumbent Gwen Rooks, who is running for reelection. Among his credentials: the bow-tie look currently favored by at least two sitting judges. Eventually, The Donald gave Olswanger the much-to-be-dreaded verdict: “You’re fired!” But will the voters of Shelby County say, “You’re hired?” Judge Rooks should be forewarned. Here is what Olswanger said on The Apprentice Web site last year: “I have bit my tongue on numerous occasions in this process. Quite frankly I’m tired of the taste of blood in my mouth. Then again, maybe the blood in my mouth is just making me thirsty for more.” Gulp!
