From Michael P. Maslanka at Work Matters: "Five pointless questions to ask in a deposition," which concludes--
Once upon a time, I anguished over every answer to every pointless question. No more. A judge or a jury looks at a case from a 30,000 foot perspective. It is not about the trees; it is about the forest. It is not about the minutiae; it is about the broad narrative. So, take a breather.
A nice sentiment! See the full post for the pointless questions, about which Maslanka confesses, "I have sinned as to each."
