    Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists.

    Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?"

    I don't know! My primitive mind can't grasp these concepts. But there is one thing I do know -I'm NOT GUILTY!

    Look the FBI guys promised me a deal. So I made up a lot of stuff about Big Stevie 'cause that's what they wanted — but it was all lies — uh — everything. And I kept saying — Stevie did this and Stevie did that — .uh — so I said yea sure, why not.

    Your choice: free top-of-the-line legal counsel and a couple years in jail, or Steve Cohen forever hounding you like a bald beast from Hell, breathing down your back, your sworn enemy.

    the glee in levine's writing seeing his fellow jew protected from prosecution is repulsive to justice seekers ………. and the condescending attitude towards the little brown man too……

    these guys try to be too cute in all their writing turning out overly convoluted articles thinking they're witty ………. pathetic
