After spending four hours in a courtroom today, I have arrived at the conclusion that benches in a courthouse are equal in comfort to church pews. Also, I am grateful that Catholic services, while they always seemed to last forever, did, in reality, end after an hour.
Also, I was actually expecting the judge to turn us loose by intoning the phrase "Go in peace", which, didn't happen.
In addition, the courtroom experience could be vastly improved by the addition of wine, which, as I recall, we did get in church, and, lastly, if my clients spent a few more hours with their butts in church pews, I would probably spend less time with my butt on a courtroom bench.
That is all.
