Still Studying Like a Dog

And I'm sure Jude is too. But I just found this on Volokh and wanted to pass it along. I really love this, but I'm not sure if it's because I'm delirious from studying or I just love Outkast.

A Quick One

There's been some bullshit in the news about some Florida clinic that's been giving people botox injections that have made them ill. Always on the cutting edge, the Today show this morning, in one of its fits of relevancy, noted that that's why you should always make sure to "get the real thing," or some such silly shit.

How about this, assholes: Stop getting fucking poison injections in your faces altogether.

Look at that--problem solved!

Judge Posner's Blog

Those of us who study law should all take interest in this site, the weblog of Richard Posner and Gary Becker.

I haven't read all that many of Posner's law review articles and only a handful of his opinions, but I do know that he's all about some law and economics (he sorta started that field). I didn't realize that he's a little kooky about it, though. His first post discusses "Preventive War."

But what if the danger of attack is remote rather than imminent? Should imminence be an absolute condition of going to war, and preventive war thus be deemed always and everywhere wrong? Analytically, the answer is no. A rational decision to go to war should be based on a comparison of the costs and benefits (in the largest sense of these terms) to the nation.
"The nation" I guess means the U.S (or whichever nation happens to be doing the attacking) and not the nation that is being attacked. It seems like someone's interests are being left out of the equation.

Update: Orin Kerr beat me to the punch.


Finals killing me. No time to post. Here, read about steroids.
