Dagger in hand

A man of prodigious fortune, coming to add his opinion to some light discussion that was going on casually at his table, began precisely thus: "It can only be a liar or an ignoramus who will say otherwise than," and so on. Pursue that philosophical point, dagger in hand.

--Michel de Montaigne, Of the art of discussion.

I'd love to have been a fly on that wall...
Which wall? Why, the one in Malibu when Babs's lawyer told her she had to cough up $154,000 and change to pay my client's attorney's fees. Which sum, as I had pointed out, is less than 2% of the damages she was demanding.

P.S. Note to summer associates: the documents linked above should be a lesson to you. Your work counts, it gets billed to clients, and courts recognize it as having value.
