Opinion: Not Well-Suited For This Job
By way of explanation, I wear clogs every day. They serve the noble function of protecting me against the dreaded emergency bunionectomy. But wait — there's more! A clog is not only a shoe, but an impediment; something stopping, say, the unbridled flow of discovery. This appealed to me.
There was a deeper meaning. Clogs are really the sabots of the Dutch, from which the word sabotage is derived; this pleased me. I like to think of my work in the defense business as that of a quiet and polite saboteur of liability, causation and damages. Credibility is somewhere in there, too.
Notwithstanding my delight at having arrived at an epigrammatic summary judgment of my personality, attitude and job description, I doubt anyone will be lining up in the near future to bring us a TV series called "Clogs," but, hey, with Hollywood — you never know. •
