My friend Brian the attorney says:
You've been in this job too long when you see a headline* that says "al-Zarqawi associates arrested in iraq" and you start wondering: what sort of law would they practice? Would the receptionist answer "al-Zarqawi and may I help you?" Would their helpline be something like " Press 1 if you have called to request a bombing. Press 2 if you wish to discuss the finer points of Sharia law. Press 3 if you would like to express your contempt for the Great Satan America and the lesser Satan Israel. Press 4 if you wish to discuss a current case or Press 5 if you are a new client. Stay on the line for further assistance"?


* I had originally typed HEADLIE. I wonder if that reflects some suppressed distrust of the media...
