I'm watching the movie "Inherit the Wind." It uses fictitious, names, in the film, but it is about the 1925 "Scopes monkey trial" with debates between Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan taken largely from the court transcripts. This trial took place 90 years ago! I'm watching this and thinking Geez, we spent ~ 75 of the past years moving forward and the other 15, moving right back! It is truly astonishing!!! It will be on TV again on Thursday.

A Times "Analysis" Of Expert Opinon Versus The Great Unwashed Richard Perez-Pena of the Times is given space to explore the public mistrust of experts. As is so often the case with the Times, I am left marveling at the mental acuity of liberals. Alarmed by Ebola, Public Isn’t Calmed by ‘Experts Say’ When public health leaders and government officials make the case against isolating more people returning from the Ebola hot zones in West Africa, or against imposing more travel restrictions from that region, time and again they cite science and experts. It isn’t working very well. So far, so good. However... Polls show the overwhelming majority of Americans favor quarantine in cases like that of Kaci Hickox, the nurse who was held against her will in a Newark hospital on the orders of one governor and has fended off the efforts of another governor to sharply restrict her movements. Some prominent conservative commentators dismiss the assurances of scientists, Obama administration officials and the ne ...

Kevin McGee Falling into the category of one of the craziest things that I have ever done; this one probably takes the cake! As some of you know, I will be performing David Rintel’s “Clarence Darrow” at Homecoming this September at Lyndon State College. In March, while doing research on the internet, I discovered that Kevin Spacey was going to be doing the show in London, May 28th-June 15th at The Old Vic Theatre where he is concluding his tenure as the Artistic Director. He had previously played Darrow both in the film “Clarence Darrow” and on stage in, “Inherit the Wind". I wrote to him at The Old Vic, introducing myself and explaining my fondness for Darrow and that I would be performing the Rintel’s play in September as a benefit for the Portner Prize. I expressed that I would love to see him perform Clarence Darrow in London as well as to have an opportunity to meet him and discuss the show and his approach to the character. I did say that the likelihood of that happening fell into the ...

Black Rage Confronts the Law by Paul Harris New York University Paperback In 1971, Paul Harris pioneered the modern version of the "black rage" defense when he successfully defended a young black man charged with armed bank robbery. Dubbed "one of the most novel criminal defenses in history" by Vanity Fair, the black rage defense is enormously controversial, frequently dismissed as irresponsible, nothing less than a harbinger of anarchy. Consider the firestorm of protest that resulted when the defense for Colin Ferguson, the gunman who murdered numerous passengers on a New York commuter train, let on that it was considering a black rage defense. Harris here traces the origins of the black rage defense back through American history, recreating numerous dramatic trials along the way. He recounts in vivid detail how Clarence Darrow introduced the notion of an environmental hardship defense in 1925 while defending a black family who shot into a drunken white mob that has encircled their home. The black rage d ...

Where Did Cain Get His Wife? Michael Pickford The question above is an age old question. Sadly, there are many Christians who cannot adequately answer it. However, there is an answer! At the Scopes Trial in Tennessee in 1925, ACLU lawyer Clarence Darrow asked the religious William Jennings Bryan the question about Cain’s wife. Bryan couldn’t give an answer. How tragic! Beloved, learn how to answer this and other questions posed by those who despise the wonderful word of God. To get a clear understanding of the proper answer to the question, we should first understand what is NOT the answer to the question. For example, some contend that God had created another group of people in the same manner as He created Adam. There are several biblical reasons why this cannot be so. For example, in Genesis 2:19-25 we learn that God brought forth to Adam every animal created. “But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him” (Vs. 20b). God then created Eve from a rib from Adam’s side. Why would G ...

Ten days before he became so famous that crowds would form around any building that contained him and waiters would fight over a corncob left on his dinner plate, no one had heard of Charles Lindbergh. The New York Times had mentioned him once, in the context of the corning Atlantic flights. It had misspelled his name, The news that transfixed the nation as spring gave way to summer in 1927 was a gruesome murder in a modest family home on Long Island, coincidentally quite close to Roosevelt Field, where the Atlantic fliers were now gathering. The newspapers, much excited, called it the Sash Weight Murder Case. The story was this: Late on the night of March 20, 1927, as Mr. and Mrs. Albert Snyder slept side by side in twin beds in their house on 222nd Street in a quiet, middle-class neighborhood of Queens Village, Mrs. Snyder heard noises in the upstairs hallway. Going to investigate, she found a large man - a "giant," she told police - just outside her bedroom door. He was speaking in a foreign accent to ...
“A Small –Town Insult Made Him the Greatest Criminal Lawyer of His Time” Clarence Darrow ...Principle at state - Injustice “He fought through seven courts for seven yrs for the sake of a $5. Harness” “Nearly three-quarters of a century ago, a school teacher boxed the ears of a ‘little boy’ because he was restless and fidgety and squirming in his seat. She boxed his ears in front of the other pupils, and ‘humiliated him’ so that he cried all the home. He was only ‘five years old’ at the time, but he ‘felt’ that he had been ‘treated with cruelty and injustice;’ he learned to ‘hate cruelty and injustice with a hatred’ that has kept him fighting all his life.” “He was paid only five dollars to fight the case, but he fought it at his own expense through seven courts for seven yrs …won it,” (Dale, C., 1937)!

I recently endorsed Andrew M. Stein for Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Seat 87 and donated to his worthy campaign. My support possibly puzzled him because over 20 years ago, he and I did battle when I was a newly minted prosecutor, and he a relentless, zealous, highly energetic and creative defense attorney. We opposed one another on many cases, and at times our interactions were nothing short of explosive (of course there is nothing 'short' about Andrew) I ascribe to the adage, "never let them see you sweat." By nature I am not a sweater anyway, unless I am enjoying a tasty Cajun meal. I am, however, a bit of an obsessive. I admit now, that Andrew caused me many, many long nights preparing for the tiniest of cases wherein he was the defense attorney. I was compelled to do so because Andrew brings the very same high energy and passion to a petty theft, that Clarence Darrow brought to the Scopes Monkey Trial. You never knew when Andrew would appear at a pro forma case setting, and take out ...

Well I’ll be a monkeys uncle- "I'll be a monkey's uncle" is actually an exclamation of surprise, and expression of disbelief and an exposition of astonishment. Often, someone will say, "I'll be a monkey's uncle" to indicate the absurdity of an unexpected occurrence or situation that actually proves to be true. This metaphorical statement may seem somewhat old-fashioned, as it is not heard as often these days as perhaps it used to be. Originally, this statement may have seemed so shocking to listeners that it was regarded almost as a more polite substitution for an oath or profanity to express shock. Similar idiomatic and familiar expressions to "I'll be a monkey's uncle" might include "Color me surprised," "Fancy that," "Good gracious," "Holy moly," "I'll be dipped," "I must be dreaming," "My goodness," "That's amazing," "That's incredible," "Well, I'll be," "Wow, I never expected that" and "You don't say."

Even if you do learn to speak correct English, whom are you going to speak it to? ― Clarence Darrow
(Clarence Darrow) He told the crowd they are hated and misunderstood: “that is your lot here. You have a long, long road to travel, and an arduous foe to fight--and that foe is prejudice.” To achieve progress, Darrow said, “You’ll have to work harder—harder than the white man—because you’re on his home grounds.” But there is no reason why success might not someday come: “There is no inherent difference between your capacity for growth and that of any other man, whatever his color.”
An exciting two weeks ahead of me...including Brian May's Diableries and Toni Morrison's latest.culminating with Kevin Spacey as Clarence Darrow! I think I just exploded.
The right man for the job! JOEL BRYANT, who owned the stage as LOGAN WELLMAN for 2-plus hours in "BLANK", Bruce Reisman's original play that recently premiered with a 6-week run in Hollywood, is officially set to "perform" the Books on Tape version of Reisman's novel. Since the book's epic story covering 30 years is told from the "first person" point of view of character, "DANNY PEARCE", the author chose to do the "books on tape" version a little different from the norm. JOEL BRYANT will not simply "read" the text; he will bring the character and story to life as a one-MAN performance piece (in the traditions of HAL HOLBROOK'S "Mark Twain TONIGHT", HENRY FONDA'S "CLARENCE DARROW", and JAMES WHITMORE'S "GIVE 'EM *** HARRY" as Harry Truman). A seasoned Broadway stage actor, as well as experienced "voice" performer, JOEL BRYANT will bring SEXUAL JUSTICE to life. Who knows? A one-man "play" on stage as DANNY PEARCE. You never know.
I totally disagree. Author is bitter and small-minded. Clarence Darrow didn't stand around waiting for someone to hand him a job.
An account of the Thalia Massie rape trials and the subsequent "honor killing" trial that shook Hawaii in the 1930s. The murder trial of 1932 was the last in the career of Clarence Darrow.
