Introduction "The dictionary definition of a term is frequently the mere air of the music which the accused has attempted to execute with variations. Frequently, too, the variations are so luxuriant and ingenious that the air is much disguised, and to hum it over from the bench is but little assistance to the jury in following the real performance. "It is somewhat easier for an offender to baffle the dictionary than the penal code, for the former is perplexed with verbal niceties and shades of meaning, while the later grasps in a broad, practical way at the substantial transactions of men." Oh, c'mon Justice Beckley of the Supreme Court of Georgia in Minors v Georgia (1879 Ga. 318) - stop spoiling all the fun!
