    Not all that often these days (because I am not in court, much less trial, too often), but I did get to make evidentiary objections quite frequently when I was a misdemeanor prosecutor for 18 months. And one of the great TV myths is that people yell "objection!" excitedly. If I were in a jury trial and the other side said something that was both objectionable AND truly damaging to the case, I would make a subtle objection so as to not draw unnecessary additional attention to it (while still making certain that the court told the jury to disregard it).

    A Jazz game is going to be a pretty even blend of Mormon and non-Mormon folks. The Mormons will not be drinking because they are in the presence of other Mormons who could potentially spot them. Mormons who chose to break the prohibition on drinking will usually only do so in private, or where they are confident that other Mormons that they may know are unlikely to be at, like a bar. Too risky to have a $9 domestic beer that won't even give you a buzz when you are at a sports arena that someone from your local congregation may also be at.

    This would be pretty good. I wanted to cast someone with a certain middle American handsomeness for Roberts, but I couldn't go recognizably movie star handsome because it would be distracting. Thomas Jane is probably too young.

    This is a great question. It varies from year to year. Ute fans have been unbearable ever since their team was elevated to the PAC-12. It is the ultimate "fuck you" to BYU, so they've gone on and on about it, to the point that the local ESPN radio affiliate (which is a U station) has this ad to the effect of "In uncertain times in major college football, with emerging super conferences, not all programs will be secured a place. But not your Utah Utes, who are in the conference of champions, the PAC-12 . . . " Ute fans are also irrational about the quality of their undefeated seasons, and it is irritating to hear about it over and over. The Colorado game last year and their anemic-beyond-belief basketball season have largely shut them up for the last few months. I will be interested to see what their fanbase is like in another four or five years, after they have seasons where they, you know, actually have to play the best teams in their new conference, and when USC is off of probation and the Arizona schools don't suck.

    Y fans are traditionally way worse. They won what was literally the most worthless NCAA title ever in 1984 . . . and they still talk about it like it is the greatest thing that ever happened. They (and I think this is something in the DNA of Mormonism in general) have the weirdest combination of superiority and inferiority complexes. There is some great conspiracy or screw job any time that they lose, and any victory is oversold as greater than it actually was. Their students are totally fucking annoying -- Napoleon Dynamite goofiness or Mitt Romney smugness.

    Great rivalry though. And two of the most underrated college football stadiums in the country.

    Mitch,

    Have you ever met a mormon who could dance? I don't mean square dancing or techno, I mean seriously soulful boogying.

    Also, other than the Pacific Islanders, why are mormons so pasty pale white? Whiter people do not exist. Why is that? Do the powers that be in the Tabernacle suck the blood out of folks from time to time? Is mormonism really just a vampiric cult? Is this why John Stockton fit in so well up there?

    As a fellow Notre Dame fan, which scenario seems the most likely to occur in the next ten years:

    A) The Irish finally breaking down and joining a conference.
    B) Notre Dame winning a National Championship.
    C) Brian Kelly's heart exploding after a costly error by his quarterback(s).

    C, definitely. Neither A nor B will happen for some time, and in my mind, the biggest reason why B will not happen is because of A. The whole NCAA playoff expansion thing has been particularly discouraging. Swarbrick was right in the middle of and in many ways was actually leading the various conference heads throughout the decision making process. That kind of thing is what the old school alums love; the Irish getting special treatment and showing influence completely out-sized to any reality not involving cash. We need to get into the ACC and start playing a normal schedule.

    If we're talking literal animals, I'm an otter. I'm clever, loyal, and equally productive and playful. I'm curious. I talk a lot. I keep myself well groomed. I believe in social institutions.

    My show would be this: each week I find some story that is in the news, and I go out and find someone whose life is directly impacted by the politics of the story. We follow the person around for a few days, and we shoot it cinéma vérité style. Aside from an introductory voiceover that I do at the beginning of the show explaining the topic and related controversy, we let real life take over. So yeah, I'm pretty much murdered.

    Idea 2: I literally chase ambulances around and sign up clients. The accidents are real. The cases are real. The money is real. The justice is awesome.

    Fortunately -- and not just for the purposes of this question -- I don't represent any public schools. So you will have to go all season 4 of The Wire on someone else's ass.

    Albert Camus. I have found more value from his writing than anyone else's. I would love to have the chance to talk with him over many, many drinks. My favorite thing about Camus is his writing, both for its unique quality and beauty, but also for what he endorsed: living a meaningful life in the face of absurdity and suffering, seeking social justice and personal dignity in the face of war and state-sponsored atrocity. My least favorite thing about Camus was that he so preoccupied during his life that he didn't write more works of fiction.

    Probably Christopher Hayes. I wish his show wasn't on at like 7:00 am on the weekends.

    There's Chan Marshall, and then there's everyone else. The rest of the list would probably include some combination of in-their-primes Stevie Nicks, Debbie Harry, Madonna, and Jewel. Jewel is not allowed to talk about her poetry, or preferably anything at all. Meg White gets a very voluptuous honorable mention.

    I think you may have problems keeping that particular dish fresh in a fair food setting like Coachella, but generally I am very supportive of breakfast food at all times of the day and in unexpected places. I think a waffle stand at Coachella would be amazing. Imagine how fucking good a Belgian waffle -- with a variety of toppings -- could be at Coachella.

    I would hope to avoid court with good negotiating skills, but if I ended up there, I think I would do well against you, Randy. I have had an asymmetrical advantage over my career with overly aggressive opposing lawyers. I have a good way of subtly rattling people, especially those who are itching for a fight.

    I don't see how The Wire has anything to do with minors having their constitutional rights suspended. Address this question: is age discrimination not the only circumstance under which it is widely accepted for the US government to consider a person not deserving of their constitutional rights without them having committed any action deserving of punishment (i.e. excluding prisoners, obviously)

    Albert Camus.
    Sociopath alert.

    You would get FUCKING HOUSED. You lead me to a good question though: what's the funniest/best line you've ever had in the course of cross/deposition or in legal procedure in general?
