M. Johnson in his letter to the editor published on July 31, might like to
read Shakespeare before quoting him. The phrase: "The first thing we do,
let's kill all the lawyers", comes from Henry the Sixth, Part 2, Act IV,
Scene 2 when Cade, a rather deranged populist, talks about his plans when he
becomes king, and is joined by Dick who speaks the line. In context, the
quotation is a positive one on the role of lawyers-who are the first line of
defense against a failure of law and justice.
Eugene Goldstein, Esq.
