    You went to the ABA White Collar Crime conference? What a suck-up. Did you bond with prosecutors? Drink with them? Trade deep, dark secrets with them? Did you learn much from lawprof speakers who've never been inside a courtroom, or government speakers informing you of the fastest way to get a 5k1.1 letter?

    I did drink with one prosecutor I worked with about 15 years ago. And I waved hello two three or four in the hall. But other than that, I was hanging with other defense lawyers. Of course, many of them were former prosecutors, which I believe makes them suspect in your worldview, so there's that.

    You're not one of them anymore. Let it go.

    Look, old man, I'm nowhere NEAR your lawn.

    I'm civil and friendly to a number of prosecutors. Some have been friends for 15 years. I'm not civil or friendly to prosecutors who have misbehaved or treated me or my clients badly. Some prosecutors are evil, some aren't. I can drink with the ones who aren't. I'm at peace with that.

    Some of my best friends were once prosecutors. I let them sit on the porch with me in the rocking chairs and talk about the good old days.

    You know, those rules work with mothers in law too.

    I would be more at peace with 18 USC 1001 if it applied equally in the other direction–any gov't employee or agent lying to a citizen. Give 'em a taste of their own medicine.
