If post-conviction DNA samples hadn't already exonerated so many people, I might find myself on SCOTUS' side on this one.  But it seems to me (in my very limited and flawed 0L understanding of the 14th Amendment) that its been shown to have so much potential for innocence-finding that it has to be a part of due process.

I will try to talk about this tonight with my fellow McDonald's burger-flippers.  Methinks it will be a lonely conversation. :(

Didn't he announce that he was leaving a while back?

While perhaps not ban-worthy, I've got no problem declaring behavior like SUCK's here actionable.  Griefing other posters by repeatedly antagonizing them with unsubstantiated accusations only detracts from the board.  I'd fully support warnings, and maybe eventual bannings after repeated warnings, for this kind of thing.

My blood pressure is 106/54. This should put to rest any PJCM rumors.

I got my blood pressure done yesterday and I was prehypertension  :-\ :-\ :-\

Getting shafted (tee hee!) on porn misrepresentation will do that.

Grr.  Why is my student loan still "waiting for institution approval" after a week and a half?

A very surly NPE is going to have to get on the phone first thing in the morning. >:(

I just watched the Fox v. Franken documentary.  Hilarious.  Genius.

Which variety are you sampling? I find the regular sweet tea a bit too sweet (crazy, I know), but the diet is just perfect.

Exactly!  The diet is the best sweet tea on the market (sugared or sugar-free!).

Matthies makes some strong points for Irrx.

I would hope that a wise non-trad with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a younger poster who hasn't lived that life.

Are you interested, npe?  You've gotten several votes!


I think it would be a Good Thing To Do, and I'm flattered (and surprised) by the nominations.  But I worry that I won't be able to devote the necessary time, what with 1L year, a new apartment, etc.

Where should I go next fall? / Re: SLU Or WashU?

Speak to some SLU and Wash U grads if you're lucky enough to have the chance.  The conventional wisdom in STL is that you've got just as good a shot here with a SLU degree as with a WUSTL degree.  I'm not endorsing that myself, but I do think that there's more to look at here than the ranking.

Another reason to look at Northwestern is that they love non-trads.  I don't know if you're wedded to the east coast; if not, definitely look into NU.
