Words Are Flung Recklessly
A UNIVERSITY scholar once said: "The two dumbest
** lawyers trying a case in court will stick to the main
points of an argument better than two eminent philosophers
debating an issue in a public forum.”
The idea is that the lawyers just can’t help themselves.
The laws of evidence and rules of legal procedure compel
them to meel head on and to keep the issue tightly joined, i
If they don’t, an alert judge will promptly set them Imck 1

hardly la* aware of it, he will frequently answer questions
at a tangent. He may even find himself replying by raising
questions of his own or by making counter-charges.
In politics, this sort of thing, of course, is far from
accidental. It is a deliberate technique, highly refined and
heavily relied u|m>ii by everyone from our presidential can-
didates down t»i the party hacks.
