The late Texas trial lawyer, Warren Burnett, had a colorful way with words, as only Texas trial lawyers can. He represented the City of Odessa, TX in its lawsuit to secure a four year university from the state.

“Your Honor, there is enough ignorance in Odessa to justify an eight year college,” Mr. Burnett replied.
