Bertha Cool said to Donald Lam. "You were disbarred for violating professional ethics.""I wasn't disbarred,"Donald answered, "and I didn't violate professional ethics. I just talked too much." About what?" "I offered to bet a man it would be possible to commit a murder so there was nothing anyone could do about it. That night he was arrested. Among other things; he told the police I had agreed to tell him how he could commit a murder and get off scot-free." What happened?" Bertha asked. "The Grievance Committee went after me hammer and tongs. They revoked my license for a year. They took the position that a man couldn't commit deliberate murder and go unpunished." "And you know how he could do it, Donald?" "Yes."
