On the late George Warren

George Warren died yesterday, as the Bristol paper reports here.

When I was a young lawyer, I took court-appointed criminal cases because that was the thing to do, and the prosecutor here was George Warren. And, whenever I got some cases, I would go see Mr. Warren before plea day, and he would explain to me in colorful terms how my client was a scoundrel and nothing but a scroundrel, and tell me a few stories, and I never kept score but the odds are that we laughed out loud at every such meeting. He was a good man and a good lawyer and good friend to thousands, including me.
