“Some of you say religion makes people happy. So does laughing gas. So does whiskey.”
-Clarence Darrow (1857-1938), American lawyer. Best known for defending teenage thrill killers Leopold and Loeb and for the only pro bono case he ever took, defending high school teacher John Scopes in the 1925 Monkey Trial, in which Scopes, as Darrow remarked, was on trial “for the crime of teaching the truth.” Lost only one out of more than 100 murder cases.
