In your opinion...

The best-- Brugmansia 'Peach Parfait' grown by George and Joan Postlethwait
Story # 13,

            In the TV show, The Good Wife, the lawyers run up against a female judge who demands that every statement be given as: ‘In my opinion……’

            I don’t know if this is an inside joke for lawyers.  One attorney caught unaware, argues that all statements in court are presumed to be in ‘their opinion’.  The judge was not impressed with that and continues to require them to say ‘In my opinion’.

            Everything that I say in these stories will be: ‘In my opinion….’.  It makes writing a lot easier when you don’t have to defend or footnote everything-------It’s just an opinion!
