  12. Skadden sounds like an awesome metal band name too. Also, I didn't know Greg Giraldo was a comedian, so I looked it up. Apparently he got his law degree from Harvard. Harvard and Skadden? What the heck made him do comedy? Anyways, it's sad that this intelligent and funny man is no longer around.
