The Deadman Night Rider

A forum for evening students of the SMU Dedman School of Law and other outlaws..

I owe it all to VHS speech and debate, sir...

That's what I should have said to one of the attorneys judging the Closing Arguments Competition on Saturday when he asked me where I learned how to present an argument like that--his guess was that I was married to a lawyer (we'll forgo any Brokeback Mountain jokes about my relationship with RK and Ross here). A professor that judged the finals last night also told me he would have thought I'd been doing this for years--so there it is, parents, take that football away from junior and put a flow pad in his hand! Twenty years later we're still getting mileage out of it!

Anyway, it was great to pull off a win for the evening students last night--some of them even turned up to cheer the ol' Hoss on. If I don't walk out of this place with anything else, I've got a little hunk of glass for my mantlepiece.

By the way - I recently found one of the Turner and Appel business cards. Ah, the memories.

Aqua blue tie was in my possession for many a moon. I don't know where it is right now, perhaps on loan to the Smithsonian Power of Myth traveling exhibit.
