This week - a judge on Maryland's Court of Special Appeals picked some familiar words in his opinion - in a case about wastewater management. He opened the document stating:
“Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down Letting the days go by, water flowing underground Into the blue again, into the silent water.
Under the rocks and stones, there is water underground.”
Yep - retired Judge Glenn T. Harrell, Jr. used lyrics from the great Talking Heads song "Once in a Lifetime" in his opinion on a petition that 'flowed' from a petition filed in Queen Anne's County on storm water discharge. You can read the full opinion HERE
