Dean Claudio Grossman, The Washington College of Law, The American University.

Dean Grossman was my faculty adviser at AU (1983-1984). Also, I took two courses taught by Professor Grossman.

In all my courses, I really have to teach the basic messages of my life: that the rewards, the satisfactions, are not in being partner or making a million dollars, but in recognizing evils, recognizing injustices and standing up and speaking out about them even in absolutely losing situations where you know it's not going to bring about any change — that there are intangible rewards to the spirit that make that worthwhile.

--Derrick Bell, Professor of Law, New York University

"Oh, how heartbreaking it was, the most guilty ones escaping punishment and flaunting their impunity in broad daylight while the innocent rotted in the ground."

--Emile Zola, The Debacle

And, by the way, the Secret Service did not ask those questions.
