And this delightfully illustrates what IMG's Mark MacCormack is pleased
to call "the Terrible Truth About Lawyers", to wit:
Lawyers believe that their job is to tell you what not to do.
Their *actual job* is to tell where risks lie, so that you can make
informed business decisions about which risks to take, and how to
allow for them.
If you as a businessman believe the lawyers' point of view, though,
you will never accomplish anything.
