Once upon a time in the 1980’s, there was an attorney [me] who had to appear before a judge in X County, New Jersey on Monday morning. The purpose of this appearance was to answer the calendar for an old criminal case related to sexual assault. Judges don’t like old criminal cases and don’t like Monday mornings anymore than the rest of us do, and this judge was particularly mean. So he called me into his chambers and started yelling, perhaps ranting is a better word, at me. Full frontal yelling is hard to take but as I stood there the theme from “It’s Gary Shandling’s Show started and kept playing in my head to keep me calm as I thought “He’s got to stop yelling at me some time.” And he did eventually. Thank you Gary Shandling.
