Facebook status of the day 

I woke up this morning to this status update from a Facebook friend (and actual friend) with more than the usual, er, capacity:

It took six rounds of Lagavulin, but finally got the guy sitting next to me at the Petroleum Club to shut up after a spirited but vacuous discussion. Turns out he's the top trial lawyer in Oklahoma, a Marxist, and can't hold his liquor. After he passed out, the entire team at the bar gave me a standing ovation, which I feel is an undeserved accolade.

Nice. I can think of less effective means of "tort reform." Only 49 "top trial lawyers" to go!

Three would have put me on the floor, or at least out of the discussion.

I wonder if the passed-out trial lawyer remembered anything of the discussion when he woke up.

If all it takes to get Marxists to shut up is $100 worth of scotch, then let's get started.

The story is apocryphal. I am the top trial lawyer in Oklahoma, and while I do not always drink scotch, when I do I prefer Talisker.
