O Captain! my Captain!

Even though JMag already mentioned it below, I do think it bears mentioning that the speculation concerning Dean Alex Johnson has been confirmed.  He will be resigning as Dean of the University of Minnesota Law School effective May 31.  In his letter to students on Tuesday he didn't give any reasons for the move, leading, predictably, to more speculation.  

For my part I liked Johnson as Dean, and as a Professor (Property).  Reasonable people can certainly disagree on his effectiveness in either role, and if they want to do it here (i.e. in the comments) they are free to do so (which means I have no idea how to close the comments), but please people, let's keep it clean.  

The far more interesting question is who we'll recruit to be the next Dean, but alas, that will have to wait until next year.  This of course means that this year's 1L class will go through three years of law school with three different people at the helm.
