sent to me from my fellow member(who is an attorney) on council.

A small town prosecuting attorney called his first
witness to the stand in a trial - a grandmotherly, elderly woman.
He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you
know me?"

She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you Mr. Williams. I've known you since
you were a young boy. And frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me.

You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them
behind their backs. You think you're a rising big shot when you haven't the
brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit
paper pusher. Yes, I know you."

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do he pointed across the
room and asked, "Mrs. Williams, do you know the defense attorney?"

She again replied, "Why, yes I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a
youngster, too. I used to baby-sit him for his parents. And he, too, has been
a real disappointment to me. He's lazy, bigoted, he has a drinking problem.

The man can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice
is one of the worst in the entire state.

Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. Yes, I know

The defense attorney was also surprised and shocked.

At this point, the judge brought the courtroom
to silence and called both
counselors to the bench. In a very quiet voice,
he said with menace, "If either of you bastards asks her if she knows me, you'll be jailed for contempt!"

Just passing it on...-R
