Washington, Day 2.

Hi, kids. Sorry for the light blogging yesterday. I was -- in my role as chair of the Appointments Committee -- conducting interviews from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Once again, I'm up early, alone in the cavernous suite at the Marriott Wardman Park, and later to be joined by five committee members and a stream of lawprof candidates. We rearranged the furniture yesterday so there are five armchairs and a sofa around a coffee table. We've got a nice high-backed, striped chair for the candidate and mostly dark blue, nondescript chairs for the committee. Today, we only go until 12:30. My colleagues arrive in 15 minutes, but I'll see if I can get some substantive posts up before then so you can have something to mull over and chat about.

(I've got some photographs of the set-up here, but I'll have to show you the pictures later, because I've forgotten the cord that connects the camera to the computer.)

I see that RHIP* applies in law school, too. Cavernous suite goes to the chair.

*Rank has its privileges

While you're in DC, don't forget to check out the Center Cafe in Union Station. They have good food and if you're on the upper level, a nice view of Congress.

My laptop has a card reader, so I can just pop the card from the camera into it and the pics pop up.

rightwing: that would be nice. My camera's cord is ridiculously bulky and I keep forgetting it.
