I decided to look up the opinion so I could read all of Scalia’s dissent. I’m already hating myself for it.
you’re a stronger person than i am, that’s for sure
One of the top ten worst things about law school is getting to the end of a 25 page decision, thinking you’re done, and then seeing the words, “SCALIA, dissenting,” because then you know you’re in for another 10-30 pages of complete vitriol and hatred and it is not going to be fun.
This morning I spoke with AG Holder at a Civil Rights Symposium in Boston. Symposium was fascinating, but I’m afraid I messed up the meeting-Holder moment. I meant to say, “So what the hell is with that fast and furious insanity and also a kill list are you kidding me where is the due process in THAT and don’t give me this law-of-endless-war stuff!” but I’m pretty sure it came out like, “Thank you for being here, Mr. Attorney General.”
Glenn Beck is hoping to single-handedly orchestrate his own “day the music died” by stamping out the diverse singing circle from “Glee.”
Speaking at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Washington Friday, Beck ignored the chalkboard that had been rolled out on stage to assist him, and instead focused on prime-time television.
“A year ago I was watching the show ‘Glee’ with my wife and we watched it like this,” Beck said making the motion of his jaw dropping. “It’s horrifying some of the things that they’re teaching high schoolers.But it’s brilliantly done. It’s brilliantly done.”
At first, Beck says he was despondent.
“I said at the end of it, we lose,” he said. “There’s no way to beat that.”
But it didn’t take long for Beck to snap out of his funk and start devising a way to defeat “Glee.” Beck’s secret weapon: what he jokingly calls “the Oedipus Project” (“because the left will be making out with me,” he explained to BuzzFeed this week). Essentially, the plan is to produce a conservative alternative to “Glee” that is covert enough in its conservatism to not turn people away.
Beck has faded from the national stage following his departure from Fox News in 2010. But he’s still extremely popular among many in the conservative community.
“But I actually don’t think Harry’s very smart. He is a good friend, nice boy, but I don’t get why he doesn’t just put on his invisibility cloak, sneak up behind Voldemort, and knock him out with his firebolt! None of his other plans have ever worked, so probably he should try that.”— 8 year old sister
“All students enter law school with a certain amount of idealism and desire to serve the public, but after three years of brutal competition we care for nothing but the right job with the right firm where we can make partner in seven years and earn big bucks.” - John Grisham
I don’t think either part of this quote is true. Not all students start law school wanting to do public interest and not all students want to do firm jobs when they graduate.
