When mediocrity makes lawyers rich

 MANY YEARS AGO I clipped a quotation from some publication and pasted it in my telephone/address book.  Rereading it today, I've  decided to share it in light of the worsening economy:
       "There are more pompous, arrogant, self-centered, mediocre-type people running corporate America who should be sent on some postal route delivering mail.  I know - their judgments and misjudgments have made me rich."
        ---------Joseph D. Jamail Jr.., lawyer representing Pennzoil Company, who won a $10.5 billion judgment against Texaco Inc., which a jury found had improperly persuaded Getty Oil Company to renege on a Pennzoil merger.
