To My Very Dear Non-Lawyer Family, Friends, Random Acquaintances

While I'm very fond of most of you already, our future interactions will be much better if you read and understand this:

(Go now please.  I'll wait.)

“Otherwise known as constitutional protections.”

“Tomato; to-mah-to.”

“More like tomato; garbanzo.”

“Wait a minute. Tomatoes aren’t the same as garbanzos.”

“Exactly.”
