What Is She Wearing?

Dress shirts for the guys, okay.

Who dressed her?

Immature Technology

The whole web is, by report, buzzing about this video which, by report, explains the Web 2.0 concept so clearly and compellingly that... well, it's just really, really neat-o.

To me, the most telling thing about it is that I've been trying for half an hour to view it, and it always stalls about thirty to forty-five seconds in. That, to me, sums up a lot of things about Web 2.0. Not that I don't think it's pretty neat-o keen. I mean, if it would just work.

A Tort Is a Tort

Because you asked for it...

Oh... you didn't? Too bad.

In case you need your memory refreshed (or created),
you can listen to the original at


Hello, I’m John Edwards!

A tort is a tort
In court, in court
And any old wrong can support a tort
That is, in short,
Unless the court
Defers to a statute instead.

Go right to the court
And claim a tort!
With evi-den-tia-ry support
‘most any old problem that you report
Will net you lots of bread!

Conservative people will tout reform
They’re nothing but corporate shills
Our way is the proper way and the norm
For those with our legal skills!

A tort is a tort,
In court, in court,
And you never, no never will come up short
In even the court of the last resort...

With a case like this:

The plaintiff wound up dead!

Our Little Genius

Here's Girl's latest song:
A, B, C, D,
And then laugh uproariously.

I never should have bought her that "Baby 2 Live Crew" video.

Wish List

Coca-Cola Is Donating Land for Proposed Rights Museum,

the New York Times announced today.

I can think of some proposed rights I'd like to see enshrined in this museum.

The right to privacy.
The right to party.
The right not to step on toys when you get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.

Let the Midterm Begin!

Day 1 of our contracts take-home midterm, and what did I do this afternoon? I read the Supreme Court's decision on the Whitewater Special Counsel's attempt to get notes from Vince Foster's attorney. 524 U.S. 399 (1998). What does this have to do with contracts? Not a blessed thing.
Attorney/Client: A Scheme Deferred

What happens to the Privilege
When the client’s died?

Does it lie there in the sun
Like a raisin, dried?

Or limp like a discarded sock
That’s not been mended-
And you wonder, why save it?

Does it last till the estate’s been ended?
Or till the heirs agree to waive it?

What if it covers up a crime
Like a coat of grime—

Can it be overcome
by a subpoena or Grand Jury?

When need the lawyer worry?
Is it never?

Turns out the Privilege lasts forever.

New Plan

Another day, another...


I found it remarkably difficult, after flyback week - read (for me, a 1L), do-nothing week - to get my head back into the game. Fortunately, there was not much game to be had: a desultory introduction to joint estates in Property, a pep talk about rewriting our non-compete memo for Legal Research / Writing... then a peanut butter sandwich for lunch, followed by an interminable discussion of test-taking strategies in Contracts. Then, as I said...

a nap.

My post-flyback resolution: more naps. Oh, and start my outline for Contracts before the midterm on Thursday. That should keep me busy.
