Quote of the day

Captain Zachary D Spilman, opposing the legislative proposal to transfer initial disposition authority from commanders to lawyers outside the chain of command, writes this in an op-ed in the Baltimore Sun:
The inability of military lawyers to get the job done is a reason to take a hard look at the leadership within the military's legal communities. It is not a reason to reward failure by giving that leadership even greater responsibility.
Cf. W. Shakespeare, Henry VI, pt. 2, act 4, scene 2 ("The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers").
