John Vance, burr with a brain

[page 76, line 18]

I think — I think maybe that was the same trial also that — and I don’t remember whether it was Maloney or Milner were on the defense on that or not. But I can remember hearing a final argument to the jury made by the defense that — bragging on the prosecution team that had been brought down. He said, “They’ve got Frank Watts, the golden-tongued eagle of the District Attorney’s office. They brought you Bill Alexander who’s got more death penalties than any other prosecutor in the state. And they also brought John Vance, the burr with a brain.”
