Today in History (1862) - The U.S. government forbids all Union army officers from returning fugitive slaves, thus effectively annulling the Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 and setting the stage for the Emancipation Proclamation. On the same day in 1865,....


Good Movies About the War in Iraq

Posted on March 13, 2008
Judging by the Vietnam precedent, wherein the first significant movies like Deer Hunter (1978) and Apocalypse Now (1979) were released after the last American had left (1975), I'm guessing we have a while to wait. In contrast to A Yank...

Here We Go Again

Posted on March 12, 2008
Geraldine Ferraro has taken up Ramesh Ponnuru's cry that one can't criticize Barack Obama without being called a racist. Like Ponnuru, she cheerfully ignores that one only opens oneself to the accusation by bringing up race at all. For example,...

How Willingness Became Weakness

Posted on March 05, 2008
Michael Gerson in today's Washington Post engages in a thought experiment in order to conclude that Obama cannot stand by his campaign pledges without becoming a foreign policy failure. Gerson declares that Obama will make an "inaugural pledge to 'pay...

The Spreading Confusion About Child Pornography

Posted on March 03, 2008
Echoing the theme of a 2006 lawsuit against Google (which the plaintiff rapidly moved to dismiss), Sen. McCain seems to conflate two distinct problems in the threat posed to human dignity by internet pornography. ... However, there is a darker...

After Hiatus, Back to Con Law

Posted on March 02, 2008
I encountered Erwin Chemerinsky in his professorial (as opposed to author/ litigator/ talking head) capacity for the first time in his videotaped BarBri lecture on constitutional law, one of a few subjects in which none of the lecture felt like...


Truth and Reconciliation

Posted on March 02, 2008

Remembering Buckley Accurately

Posted on March 01, 2008
1. Writing in the New York Times (not National Review, so never mind those who claim to have read it in their subscription) in 1986, he composed a kind of dialogue between School A, the protectors of civil liberties and privacy, and School B, the protectors of public health (he being in the latter category): But if the time has not come, and may never come, for public identification, what then of private identification? Everyone detected with AIDS should be tatooed in the upper forearm, to protect common-needle users, and on the buttocks, to prevent the victimization of other homosexuals...

Bar Exam Hiatus

Posted on February 07, 2008
With less than three weeks left before the February bar exam, I'm going offline until the 28th. Then I'll be posting until March 15 -- the fourth anniversary of De Novo -- when I will stop blogging. My law student status technically ceases next Thursday when I graduate, and the bar exam is the last vestige of it...

Religious Voter Guides: The Good, the Questionable, and the "Lawyers Approved That? Really?"

Posted on February 02, 2008
In order for contributions to it to be tax-deductible, no 501(c)(3) entity can allow a substantial part of its activities to be lobbying, i.e. attempting to influence legislation. I'm not really sure how this works out for, say, the Virginia chapter of the ACLU, which seems to spend a lot of time on legislation judging by the emails it sends me...

What Bush Does When He Finds Something Really Unconstitutional

Posted on February 01, 2008
A favorite grudge against Sen. John McCain among conservative leaders and lawyers is that he sponsored campaign finance reform legislation that they deem to be a violation of the core First Amendment right to political speech. Particularly troubling for them was the non-lawyer McCain's supposedly urging his Congressional colleagues who had reservations about the law's constitutionality to vote for it and let the Supreme Court decide which provisions passed constitutional muster...

Strange Timing by the Columbia Spectator

Posted on January 30, 2008
I'm trying to think of a more inopportune time since the Gujarat riots to publish an opinion piece about how meek and mild Hindus are. I cannot think of a more bizarre moment to make this statement: "Keeping a low profile is a manifestation of the non-interventionist mindset that has enabled Hinduism to survive some 8,000 years in spite of assaults like the Muslim invasions, the Goa inquisition, and more recent encroachments like the Gospel Fellowship Trust India’s campaign to aggressively convert Dalits and impoverished tribesmen to Christianity...

NYC Government: Persian Gulf War Never Ended

Posted on January 28, 2008
In a list of periods of conflict for determining whether one receives a property tax exemption reserved for veterans, the City of New York gives the following: - World War I: April 6, 1917 - November 11, 1918 - World War II: December 7, 1941 - December 31,1946 - Korean Conflict: June 27, 1950 - January 31,1955 - Vietnam War: February 28,1961 - May 7, 1975 - Persian Gulf War: August 2, 1990 - Present Does anyone know if this is a standard list from the federal government about the dates for active duty?


Paulsen Will Never Prevent an Abortion

Posted on January 28, 2008
Although I am sure Michael Stokes Paulsen is quite able in arguing the case for abortion prohibition in a more academic format, his Balkinization post about the Roe Holocaust* was disappointingly tiresome. Legal scholars who make such arguments seem to be either ignorant of or indifferent to the fact that Anglo-American law never treated abortion as a species of killing...
