When I clerked for David Bazelon in 1964-65, a large original version of a Peanuts cartoon, inscribed by Charles M. Schulz, was displayed on the wall in the Judge's inner chambers. In the first frame of the cartoon, Lucy van Pelt discovers her comic book torn and crumpled on the floor. In the second frame, with outrage written on her face, she confronts her brother Linus with the corpus delicti-and Lucy, you will recall, was never far from glowering outrage. She shouts, "Who did this to my comic book? Are you responsible for this?" Linus responds, "Am I responsible? That is a very difficult question."
