Jill's new album is fire.  Crown Royal is fire, as is Epiphany and Insomnia.

Also, check for the single of Jay-Z's new album (due in November), "Blue Magic."  Fire.  The album is a concept album inspired by Denzel's new *&^% "American Gangster."  What's ridiculous is the Tapemaster's mixtape that dropped a couple of months ago by the same name -- "An American Gangster."  Just crazy remixes of various Blueprint and Black Album joints.

Didn't look that simple to me.  Maybe he didn't need to be tasered but he was clearly resisting arrest, perhaps even with violence when he was on the ground.  Even with six officers you could see him struggling to get free.  He at least deserved an ass whooping, and maybe even the tasering.

My boy Huckabee will destroy all the other debaters.  Crazy-evangelical Brownback?  Racist-ass Tancredo?  On-point-but-irrelevant Ron Paul?  Nah.  Huckabee will make a real nice name for himself with this opportunity.  Just wait.

That explains why I can't find the class Feldman is supposed to be teaching now that he's at HLS.  Shoot, if I had a sick ass crib, I'd take sabbatical and play PS3 on the plasma all darn day.

I hate Isiah Thomas.  I mean, the Knicks already sucked when he came in.  Now they're an f'n joke.

You had two semesters of con law?  We, and I think Harvard, have only 1.  But federalism and 11th Amendment immunity are quite interesting indeed.

Fortunately, the only thing I have for 2 semesters is legal writing.

I have 2 semesters of LRW and 2 of Civ Pro. 

And I h8 ConLaw.  Marbury v Madison for 3 sessions already >:(.  The word Marbury now has a Pavlov effect on me..... 

Professor: "We're going to, once again, take a look at Mar" ::Head falls on desk:: zzzzzzzzzzzzz




I really LOL'd!!! :D


Don't worry, yo, like JD06 said, once you start talking about Abortion, Affirmative Action, Segregation - Con Law will all of a sudden become your #1 class.  All of a sudden everybody will be loving Con Law.


you actually talked about that stuff in con law?


You're kidding right?

To be fair to Ackerman, I actually thought his class was fascinating. Our ConLaw class was more a class on constitutional history and solving the countermajoritarian difficulty. We didn't talk about Aff Action or Abortion. We didn't do any modern cases except Griswald, Lawerence, Lochner and Brown. All were in relation to an idea of a constitutional moment - so we didn't study it for what it actually said about the issue - but what the decision was signaling as the direction of our country.

But our con law class focused on 1)The actual constitution and how to read it, 2) theoretical frameworks for analyzing judicial decisions in relation to the function of the judges, 3) Constitutional moments (to be fair, we spent a lot of time on the 14th Amendment)

To that end we didn't discuss a lot of policy or the constitutionality of many policies such as abortion, affirmative action, etc. No first Amendment stuff either.


Werd.  I have Daryl Levinson.  All we've been talking about has been majoritarianism and such.  Hence beginning with Dworkin.  I wonder if he intends to sustain discussion of this throughout the semester.

We only have one semester.  It's boring because it resembles college con law.  We're still on Marbury and McCullogh and supplementing the cases with an intro to constitutional interpretation through Dworkin, Strauss, and Scalia.  I am a fan of commerce clause jurisprudence, and that's next, so the class should pick up.  Plus my prof is pretty good.

First years at HLS (last year -- different 1L schedule this year) took Torts, Crim, Civ Pro, Ks, Property, one elective (but nothing major like Corps, Securities, Tax, Con Law, etc.) and two semesters of legal writing.

This year's HLS first years take Torts, Crim, Civ Pro, Ks, Property, International Law, and Statutes and Regulations, I believe.  We added an international law and statutory interpretation components to the 1L curriculum.

2L year courses are not nearly as interesting as I thought they would be.  Constitutional law, snore.

We have that in 1L.


Yes, we're Harvard.  We think we're special.
