Henry Shapiro, & Sheldon Silverman, two veteran stenographers, retire from Brooklyn courthouse after forty years (News):
By Shapiro's estimate, he's churned out 20,000 pages of transcripts annually for the last four decades -- roughly 800,000 pages of testimony and argument.
Only Federal Judge George Rosling changed a word after ranting "Let the bastards starve" about inmates staging a hunger strike at the Manhattan prison known as the Tombs.
"He changed the transcript to "Let the fasters starve," Shapiro recalled.
...Silverman, who could not be reached, was also notable for his broad-shouldered suits especially the purple and mustard-colored ones.
