Unfortunately I didn't Google at all. I just did Google that name, though,
and found one of his name, also a lawyer, who was "indicted for tax
evasion"! I only remembered you mentioning your father's profession before
and assumed, based on my experience with you, that your father was no slouch
as a lawyer. I assumed he earned his fees.
Obviously taxpayers pay lawyers by the word. Why else are statutes and
regulations and law professors' articles so prolix?

Eh? He was paid by the semester by the New Jersey taxpayers. His articles
weren't paid for at all. Are you googling the wrong Tom Cowan?

I thought you'd say that. See Asimov v. Bova (Jewish guilt and Italian
guilt), settled out of court.
I could dance with you till the cows John Cowan

come home. --Rufus T. Firefly
