Dave!

That is great! Is it best to counter a vitriolic brief with snark like that? I would have probably just ignored it altogether... but that would be so much more satisfying.

Ted

Garner's example is actually a little snarkier than I would use: "bordering on the hysterical," "embarrassing in a barroom," and "ranting" may well be enough to get a judge to complain that both sides are indecorous, and it's not at all rhetorically necessary to make the same point. Show, don't tell.
