Few things make lawyers more enthusiastic than deep pockets vs. VERY deep pockets.

Surely, Martin Gardner’s 1978 book Aha! has to take precedence. Pity he’s departed, else he’d have had a lot of giggles getting into the mess of it all…

It can’t possibly be a good idea to get in a fight with a woman who can raise an army of zombie followers against you. How many anti-plugs would she need to bring up before MofO is out of business?

Martin Gardner is alive and well at 94, John!
