Sitting On Defense

Well, our California "colleagues" are getting some company from yours truly, who has been lobbing columns cross-country to the Sacramento Union. Today I use the Johnnie Cochran funeral as a springboard to ponder the role of the defense attorney in our society.

And here is a line that I cut for purposes of space and brevity, but I hated to drop: "Al Sharpton was there too, delivering an obsequious obsequy."

A lot of quasi-cute word play but where is the substance? The piece seems to take no real position, illuminate no new truth but merely rehash that having a lawyer is a good idea when accused of a crime.

Great, but hardly column-worthy.
