People are enjoying my work experience story from 2001. That was where I learnt this cracker of a lesson:

*Judge gazes out the window of his chambers*

“This hearing might not take very long”

“How...how do you know that?”

“Prosecution counsel just parked in a 20 minute bay.”

Important piece from @JakeBenRichards at the (already fraught) intersection of law and politics

Lovely, moving piece.
