PERHAPS MR. GRAHAM cut class the day his law professor talked about the buggy-ride taken toward the Justice Building which found a student named Learned Hand getting off first and saying to O.W. Holmes, Jr., “Do justice, sir!”
“My job, sonny,” he was told by the Yankee from Olympus, “is not to do justice. My job is to apply the law.”
Mr. Graham, absent, would accordingly have missed the professor going on to speak of John Adams and Josiah Quincy, Jr., the Rochin case and Holmes himself in the Holt case.
Mr. Gohmert, on the contrary, might very well have attended that day, but the professor was speaking Chinese for all he made of it.
