    As a young lawyer working on my first big case, I was sitting in Federal District Court watching a prominent attorney question a witness. The attorney was trying, unsuccessfully, to elicit certain information.

    Finally the judge turned to the witness and asked a question that prompted the appropriate response.

    "Thank you, your honor," the attorney said. "How is it that you were able to get to the crux of the matter with one question after I had tried three times?"

    "Easy," replied the judge. "I'm not paid by the hour."

    I would like to think its a joke but its certainly within the realm of possibility for someone in love with billable hours and the sound of his own voice to be guilty as charged.
