Sitting in the courtroom and observing the jurors’ faces as attorney Donald Temple delivered his closing arguments in the case of Eric Payne v. the District of Columbia, every fiber of my being sensed that justice was soon going to roll ‘down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream.’
— Colbert I. King, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist (via The Washington Post)
