Opening Arguments


A man apologizes for scribbling an obscentiy on the check he used to pay his parking ticket with, but his lawyer says he could have fought it:

"The F-word isn't what it used to be," attorney Keith Williams said. It doesn't have a sexual connotation anymore and so can't be considered obscene, he said.

Granted, the F-word has been so overused that it has lost some of its shock value. But the lawyer is out of his mind. It's still the mother of all vulgarities.
