    Damn! I don't know what happened to the image I posted, but it was Perry Mason. I don't think he ever lost either.

    Sorry, Perry, but according to Wikipedia

    "May the record reflect that Perry Mason did lose three cases of almost 300 --- a record any lawyer would envy, especially since he got one of his losses reversed on appeal. His losses were: The Case of the Witless Witness, The Case of the Deadly Verdict, and The Case of the Terrified Typist."


    Wikipedia goes on to say:

    "However, in a July 15, 2009 interview on National Public Radio's program All Things Considered, Barbara Hale claimed that all of Mason's lost cases were declared mistrials off the air."

    But of course Della was biased and not under oath, and can't be expected to accurately recall events of so long ago.

    Good call on both parts. Matlock rocked, but I still watch Andy Griffith on tv land.

    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, we all know that driving drunk is a horrible decision every single time. And my client (dramatic turn and point) did just that! Is she guilty of a DUI and stupidity? Hell yes she is! My appologies to the court for the cursing. Does she deserve to pay that fine and do her time? Yes she does!!

    But, ladies and gentlemen, we are not here to decide that. We are here to decide whether or not my client (client coached to wipe tears now) deserves to be found guilty of homicide. It has already been ruled in court cases before us, that women in their last trimester can have an abortion if it is in the intrest to save their own lives. (I really don't know what trimester it was, but I'm on a roll). On that fateful night, the same night that my client had too much to drink, most of us were nestled safely in our beds. Can I have a show of hands for anyone that overcompensated during a curve in the road?

    I know I have. Show of hands for anyone who has been in a car crash. I know I have. Anybody remember what they were thinking when it happened? If you're like me, you acted instinctually. You braced yourself, turned your head and probably screamed. In this case, thrusting her stomach towards the steering wheel was the only way to save herself.

    Ladies and gentlemen, I implore you to use your best judgement here. Did my client needlessly cause the end of her pregnancy (I wouldn't call it a child just for effect) or was she simply saving herself much like what doctors do on an operating table every single day in America? Was she wrong for driving? Yes. Was she wrong for saving herself? Well, that's for you to decide.

    The defense rests its case, your honor.
    It would give me reason to vote for a conviction of reckless endangerment instead of homocide. That would probably make the drunk slut feel better.

    Spinning off of the discussion of hall of fame tv attorneys, I couldn't help but be reminded of my brother in law.

    He is one of the guys who fervently will argue the most asinine points, complete with wide eyes and being absolutely convinced that he is right. As a case in point, he's an X Files fan and was talking about how the government is hiding from us how aliens live among us (picture the wide eyes, and being totally convinced that he's right and you'll have the set up).

    Several years ago, he was arguing some ludicrous point with his dad (my father in law), all the while acting like he understands how the law works. His dad asked, "How do you know that?" His reply (remember the wide eyes), "I watch A LOT of episodes of Matlock, dad!"

    I've never respected him since...

    here is a woman who survived a 7 month saline solution abortion. The man who performed it she discovered later, grosses over $70 million per year doing abortions. Sorry, there is just something very wrong with THAT. Watch her story...
