       Comic Argus Hamilton, on lawyers for Qubilah Shabazz,
       Malcolm X's daughter, saying the U.S. government entrapped
       her into a plot to kill Louis Farrakhan: "It's murky. The
       only thing we know for sure about her is that her name's
       worth 10,000 points in Scrabble."

       Cirque du O.J.: "Robert Shapiro says that he will never
       speak to F. Lee Bailey again.  That should save O.J. about
       $500 an hour right there."  (Leno)

       "Things have gotten so bad between them that the other
       day, Shapiro asked Judge Lance Ito to sequester Bailey."
       (Alex Pearlstein)

       "The split came when both demanded that Tom Cruise play
       their part in the movie." (Gary Robb)

       "How many O.J. lawyers does it take to screw in a light
       bulb? TWO! One screws it in, the other tells the tabloids
       he did a lousy job." (Tony Peyser)

       "The fight proves something we've all suspected: Even
       attorneys can't stand attorneys." (R. Alex Kaseberg)
