THE CHISOLM HOLE
Everybody in the massed-out crowd was
howling for death or a finish - 'get that
dumb bastard out of his chair, and now!'
went the cry. The judge came in wearing
a roller skate hat. No one said a word
about that. There wasn't any bailiff,
just a guy eating eggs.
I arose and spoke from my seat.
'From where I sit, I can't see a
thing, your Honor, because I'm
standing.' The judge laughed in
my face and said, 'On her?
I never touched her.'
