I blame a college student who quotes prophets and New York City's Higher Ed. Oh, and the frivolous lawsuit didn't help either.

Can you explain my rambling?

College student - HAM? HAF? Was this a real frivolous lawsuit? Did this happen in the 21st century? 20th? In the US? Prophets - Biblical prophets? Nostradamus? Higher Ed = higher education? Someone named Ed?

Major prophet? Minor prophet? Ed = Ed Koch (no, I can't pronounce his last name)?

Major prophet? this one Minor prophet? Ed = Ed Koch (no, I can't pronounce his last name)? yes! And he pronounces it the same as I do. Kotch. On a side note, after Koch left the mayoral position, and David Dinkins took over, people would come up to my dad and say "hey, you still Mayor?" He'd reply "Do I look black?"

Isaiah? Jeremiah? Ezekiel? Daniel?

The lawsuit - was the college student the one who filed the suit? Was sued? Was Ed the one who filed the suit? Was sued?

Is the college student a certain Balin, who makes gratuitous references to Kochs on these forums? And is this a revenge puzzle?

Isaiah? Jeremiah? Ezekiel? Daniel? none of these.... see below *heh*

Is the college student a certain Balin, who makes gratuitous references to Kochs on these forums? And is this a revenge puzzle? pretty much, yeah. And now you've just got to find out the part about the frivolous lawsuit, which should be easy if you've been paying attention to this forum. (For the record, Balin quotes Samuel 16 in his profile.)

Did it involve people named Ron and Lory (well, not really named that, but I named them that) and something about a dog? (I don't remember the outcome of the puzzle, but it was a Balin puzzle, I'm certain)

The one about the man named Koch and Coca-Cola? Precisely

******SPOILER*****
This went quick. It was a joke on the jokes that are now made of my last name. The bible-quoting college student is Balin, whose "personal quote" on LTPF is
"Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart." - 1 Samuel 16:7

And yes, the frivolous lawsuit is Fredrich Koch/Coke-it-is being sued by Coca-Cola. And that's Balin's fault too. And NYC Higher Ed is ex-mayor Ed Koch.

I'll say it again...

Very clever!
