Mr.V (with tie)
YOU MIGHT THINK that a million-dollar-a-year (plus) lawyer who wears $200 custom-made shirts imported from England would go more for caviar and champagne, right? Remember, however, that I dont need to write legal briefs or argue in court; meaning I can pick and choose anything and everything I want. Its called good lawyering. Besides, baloney has its advantages. Its soft, pink and a tasty morsel that goes well with a lot of things in a lot of different situationsattributes not to be ignored in Washington. Dont forget, too, that theres more to life than swinging a golf club with Slick, if you know what I mean.
I suppose its well-known by now that Im on several corporate boards; I lost track, but I think its ten altogether. Anyway, Revlon is one of them, and old Charlie (Revson) had a way with words: something like In the factory we make cosmetics, in the store we sell hope.
With all due respect, allow me to frame my position
|When baloney needs some squeezing, I smile and do so try to make it
Since big-shot friends depend on me, discretions the key for my BIG fee!
