In 1981, Isaac Asimov wrote the following limerick on a postcard to Still in celebration of Still’s victory in representing a teacher who had been fired for giving Asimov and John Ciardi’s book Limericks, Too Gross to a student:

WATCH OUT!

Don’t you mess round with Lawyer, Ed Still,

For he puts those opposed through the mill.

Twelve good men and true

Will frown upon you,

And then wait till you find out the bill.
