Television gives lawyers the opportunity to infuse values to a wide audience of diverse backgrounds and to the non-reading public. Time pressures and the amount of censorship and self-censorship involved in mainstream programming is a frustrating limitation. Good ethics commentary is not just a matter of clever sound bites, and off the cuff chatter. For this reason, the op-ed and column are welcome additional resources for public moralizers.

Chief Justice Earl Warren once remarked that in civilized life, law should float on a seat of ethics. Making this so is not only the responsibility of legal professionals with access to the statehouse, the courthouse, and the media. It is a responsibility of everyone.
