At the end of the article Mike has a story about the origins of the "Miranda" warnings. The Gideon arrest was about the time I started playing pool for small change in Panama City, Fla.

Calling the Bay Harbor bar a pool hall is a stretch. It was a seedy little bar with mostly old drunks and no action any time I was there. Down the street was a bigger place with lots of action and more than a little rough. Good place to have someone to watch your back.

Fred Turner's biggest rep was for running a business while in prison for tax evasion. Or so most people claimed. He later became a judge. First I've heard of his death, odd to read it in BD.
