For the lawyers to collect that kind of money, I think they ought to have crosses burned into their arms, too. I mean come on, that's more than 20 times what the kid got.

Living close by, I've been following this in the papers. A teacher I know there was quickly fired for saying bad words in front of his students, but they have let this drag out for years now.

That means something, but I'm not sure what...

I'm amazed the lawyers gave up that much to the kid.

The legal profession is the only employment that Jesus cursed. It wasn't an accident.
