Once again, Lennox Grant of the Guardian shows the younger ones how to spin the tools of their profession into a marvelous piece of prose in his Sunday commentary, which focuses on the speech by Chief Justice Ivor Archie to mark the beginning of the new law term.
"Forget the calf-length black gown piped in red and white, and the roman collar, with the fan-shaped, lacy bib, frothing down his chest: those visuals of Chief Justice livery recall a high clerical functionary of medieval times.
Hear, instead, soundbites and the buzzwords that present Mr Archie as the today CEO of a state enterprise, operating in a service industry called justice."

Lenny, when are you going to start teaching this thing man? You can start with your charges at the Guardian (see the post Basic Grammar).
