Johnnie Cochran DEAD

“CNN BREAKING NEWS: Lawyer Johnnie Cochran, who famously defended actor O.J. Simpson, has died
aged 67 at his home in Los Angeles, CNN confirms.”
“such a loss : )”
i dont believe anyone asked what you had for breakfast
“they are delightful for breakfast”
“If the hat don't fit...you must quit.”
that was soooo, hmm...sooooo mean.”
“Are ya sure it wasn't because someone pulled his feeding tube? We are a nation of a death cult now.”
I still love his Chewbacca defense
“if Chewbacca is from Endor, it doesn't make sense. How can a Wookie be from Endor? It doesn't make sense!!! If it doesn't make sense, you must aquit.”
“The Pope is getting a feeding tube. Damn Italians medlin and git'n some say in our bidness.”
“To bad it's him instead of OJ.”
“i know, stovie, i'm with you on that one.”
“now I wonder which sleeping bag I should pack for this weekend hike...sheesh...who gives a RATS patuti!!!”
“Oooo, the sleaze factor of the world goes down fractionally...”
“I'm speechless, he, he, he!”
“The one that doesn't contain Johnny Cochran, since he's DEAD.”
“Lawyers keep America free.”
“I wonder if Johnny has had a chance to talk to Nichole Brown and Ron Goldman yet?”
“Buddur, who says Johnny is going to heaven where Nicole and Ron may be?”
“Maybe if Johnny got enough criminals off he will have a of company in hell. Maybe there was a method to his madness.”
“I heard they found a bloody glove.”
“I don't think Johnnie and Nicole are in the same place.”
“that is right Squirrel...
Nicole is in a box in the ground, Johnnie is at the morgue.”
“I worked for him for about 3 weeks and then I transferred to a different law firm. Personally, I think O.J. got off partly because Cochran was a brilliant strategist and partly because Gil Garcetti's office was a bunch of incompetant boneheads. But, he didn't commit the crimes. He was just a lawyer. And a good one, at that. Everyone is entitled to legal counsel. Even the pervs, killers nd other dregs of society. So, don't totally condemn the guy because he was performing a job that is necessary. If you were defending OJ, it would be your duty to defend. If you have moral issues, you step down. Simple!”
“What the goat said...
"We are a nation of a death cult now.”
We always have been.

“In rethinking my earlier posts I have to recant my callous comments. It was wrong. Johnny was someone’s son, father, brother, and/or husband. I shouldn’t have made light of it.”
“"Even the pervs, killers nd other dregs of society......"
Hello.....Trail Talk, here!! >8^O”
“If it aint just a rumor it must be a tumor.”
“yea, everyone's entitled to a lawyer, but he didn't HAVE to take the OJ case... i guess my morals would have gotten the best of me and i wouldn't have defended a murderer. maybe he believed that oj wasn't guilty, who knows. either way, he was someone's family, so my prayers go out to them.”
“Yes, Scorchy. And, like I said, everyone's entitled to counsel. If there is a moral conflict, then step down. It's like what William Kunstler's political opponents used to say about him. And those things were not too kind! It goes with the territory when you defend high-profile, questionable characters. But, someone has to do it.
I only met him on the surface as I was just records keeper for that firm. I don't know what he was like to his peers in the legal business.”
“It turns out that coachranfirm has 5 offices in Alabama. The only other state he has multiple offices is California with 5 branches as well.”
“I think TreeBeard should write a book along the same lines as Grishem does. A liberal hippy secretly working in the records department of a large conservative corrupt firm uncovers a plot within the firm that will seek to block the removal a feeding tube of a persistent vegetative woman. The plot thickens as our record keeping hero seeks to subvert and derail the evil firm’s plans to deny the poor woman her right to die. It could even have a great tagline like…
“I a world of corporate conservative greed, one man risks it all to stand up for one woman’s right to rot…”
CALL DOUBLEDAY!! We have a winner! :)”
You are right, DH. I was with the New York Office in 1999 when Cochran joined with Damashek, Weitz, et al...”
“How do you like the moniker at the top "America's Law Firm?"
Why do I picture Jackie Childs every time I think of Johnnie Cochran?
Remember the bit where Kramer wanted a Living Will?

“America's Law Firm? I thought that was the ACLU? Bawhahahahaha!”
“I always thought that Jackie was a direct parody of him...
Good plot development, Nigal! i think you're onto something!”
“Hey, Nig! I got a title!
“You don't have the cleavage that Julia Roberts had in that Brokavich...or at least I HOPE you don't.”
“Dayhiker deflates the Tree in a matter of seconds....”
“I hope to never hear the line "They're called man-boobs" on the big screen.”
“He shoots, he scores!!!
TB, I may be in NY at some point in the next few months. I have a project going Atlas Park Mall. I think that's Brooklyn? I also have one in Poughkeepsie. There are others around the bend, but I don't know where yet.”
LOL! In stead of cleavage his weapon would be his progressive libal views combined with a deep hypnotizing radio voice.”
“Hello NY, I'm listening.”
““I hope to never hear the line "They're called man-boobs" on the big screen.”
I believe the medical term is 'bltch t i t s'”
“DH, Maple and I would be glad to meet you, if your schedule permits. If you so desire, let us know beforehand and we could arrange something. If you need a ride, place to stay or any help, we are here. I will let you know how to get in touch...”
“And the ledgend of the Treehouse Hostel lives on...”
“I think that's only when they're the result of estrogen overproduction as the result of taking testosterone.
When you grow'em the old-fashioned way (middle age spread) they're MANBOOBS!”
“Don't forget stapler death threats in that plotline!”
“I see Mr. Crappusher is at it again! :)”
“Speaking of which, did anybody else see the picture of Schwarzeneggar on the Drudge Report yesterday? Talk abut man-boobs!”
