Another Reminder

That even legal discussion can have moments of real, quality writing:

So that the form-agreements tend either at once or over the years, and often by whole lines of trade, into a massive and almost terrifying jug-handled character; the one party lays his head into the mouth of a lion–either, and mostly, without reading the fine print, or occasionally in hope and expectation (not infrequently solid) that it will be a sweet and gentle lion.

– Karl Llewellyn, The Common Law Tradition

I love the phrase “jug-handled character.”
