If you could choose a lifetime song, what would it be?  Anything by Mumford and Sons
Favorite Quote:   "Law is more than the words that put it on the books; law is more than any decisions that may be made from it; law is more than the particular code of it stated at any one time or in any one place or ntation; more than any man, lawyer or judge, sheriff or jailer, who may represent it...None of man's temples, none of his religions, none of his weapons, his tools, his arts, his sciences, nothing else he has grown to, is so great a thing as his justice, his sense of justice.  The true law is something in itself; it is the spirit of the moral nature of man; it is an existence apart, like God and as worthy of worship as God."  Walter van Tilburg Clark, The Oxbow Incident.
