DefenseAttorney looks around my office at the Saint Ives plaque (patron saint of lawyers), certificate for working security on a JPII visit and statue of Michael defeating Satan. Then he turns to me and says, "You're Catholic. That explains why you're so tough about the law."
At the time my reply was, "Well, it's worked for over 2,000 years."
After DefenseAttorney left, I started thinking. If I'm tough because I'm Catholic, just imagine what what I'd be like if I was a Jewish prosecutor. With 2,000 years of a faith behind my religion I'm tough; with 4,000+ years behind me I might be a force of nature.
