Famous Words: I know what Burt is going through. It’s the loneliest feeling in the world. It’s like walking down an empty street listening to your own footsteps. But all you have to do is knock on any door and say, “If you let me in, I’ll live the way you want me to live, and I’ll think the way you want me to think.” And all the blinds will go up, and all the doors will open, and you’ll never be lonely ever again.
Why He’s Awesome: When the entire town from which you plan to select a jury throws a parade for the prosecutor, burns your client in effigy, and gathers every night outside the prison to sing about lynching the defendant, you might be a little worried about jury contamination. Five words, Henry. Motion for change of venue.
