Even an attorney of moderate talent can postpone doomsday
year after year, for the system of appeals that pervades American
jurisprudence amounts to a legalistic wheel of fortune, a game
of chance, somewhat fixed in the favor of the criminal, that the
participants play interminably.

(from "In Cold Blood," 1965)
