So long, Chief

This is a little belated, but here's a flashback post from April 2006 as a way to say goodbye to Roy Scheider, who died last week:

"Hello. This is Chief Brody of the Amity Police Department with a public service announcement about childhood obesity.

"Folks, if kids in this country get any fatter ... we're gonna need a bigger boat.

"Ha ha! See what I did there? That was my line from Jaws 1. 'We're gonna need a bigger boat.'

"Seriously, kids, try to slim down a little."

Folks, if intellectual property law gets any more complicated, we're gonna need a bigger boat. Love, the legal department.)
