    A lot of links to savor from the efficient pig, entirely edible excepting its oink, as lawyers scrapple.

    Reminiscent of the quote attributed to Bismarck to the effect that laws are like sausages (it being best that one not see how they’re made), which in turn leads me to give a plug to the recent book by Dan Feldman & Gerald Benjamin, “Tales From the Sausage Factory,” which, although it deals primarily with legislation, also offers insights into one of the author’s forays into firearms-liability litigation while an Assistant Attorney General in New York.

    (On another note, there are those who go into litigation not as pigs but as princes. In such a case, the prince is likely to become a pauper rather than a sausage.)
