I just knew that line was going to draw comment.
His point was that there are those who condemn defense lawyers as being
immoral, just as there are those who condemn strippers as being immoral, those
who believe Wal-Mart is immoral because so many small stores shut down when
they open up, and those who believe Dow Chemical is immoral because - in
addition to all the good things they've produced - they've fouled the
environment / made birth control devices / yadayadayada. Immorality, I
suppose, is in the eye of the beholder.
