[When I published this post originally on October 10, I indexed it under Lawyer Magicians. As Ms. Pynchon pointed out in her comment, Mr. Lazar isn't a lawyer. I feel constrained to change the indexing. I've also decided to change the title and some of the content. Otherwise, the indexing wouldn't make sense. In any case, Mr. Lazar is an interesting addition to our collection of magician/law-related acquaintances].
