Alito panel.

Here at the law school tonight, the Federalist Society and the American Constitution Society are hosting a panel discusion about the Alito nomination. Room 3250, 7 p.m. I'll be participating, along with Professors Church, Greene, Downs, Schweber, and Sharpless. It should be pretty lively!

UPDATE: Notes on the panel are here.

Will a podcast and/or transcript be available?

Yes! DO podcast it! I haven't seen Professor Church for 20 years! I'd LOVE to hear that discussion.

Will there be beer? It would be more lively with beer...

Sorry I won't be able to make it. I'm glad there will be someone speaking out for me though!

Ever since I started blogging myself, I have found your blog to be just great (I even watched Medium yesterday). I tried to talk to the liberal blogs too, but they banned me.

So much for free speech.

A tidbit for your panel discussion: Alito ranked 16th of 74 in productivity.

I'd give much to be there. Good luck, Ann!

As my old Oxford Union mentor told me, before making my maiden debate speech:

"Keep your head high, and your voice low, and hope everyone's had a lot of gin".


Oh the teasing possibilities...I grow faint.

I'd be curious about Professor Church's sense on the nomination as well. This is probably a good thing, but I did not get a good read on him politically in my Con Law class he taught. He was one of my favorites with his wry sense of humor. I thinks Prof. Sharpless would be a great Rep. candidate in any congressional district but Baldwin's. I like him though I'm a Dem...he seems pretty intellectually honest. I wonder if that is a by-product of the fact that he knows he will lose in his district so it is no big loss to abstain from pandering.

Anyway, too much caffeine for me, I better shut up.
