Bad Couple Weeks

First, WFB passed away.

Then today, we hear that Brett Favre is retiring.

Completely different sorts of sadness really, but then again, in the grand scheme of things 1) it is hard to say which is worse (accounting for faith), and 2) both are completely and totally selfish.

A Bit Jealous

Earlier this week we hosted Prof. Nelson Lund from the George Mason University School of Law for a debate on the Second Amendment and D.C. v. Heller. All around a great event, but at dinner later on Prof. Lund mentioned a curriculum requirement that GMUSL is instituting, their course "The Founders' Constitution." Needless to say, this being a Fed-Soc dinner, we were all (from the U and from St. Thomas) intrigued, and quite honestly, a bit jealous. If I wasn't a 3L devoid of ambition, I would totally undertake the course (the syllabus is available on the course website) as a self-improvement/independent study course.

Dick Durbin is a speed reader, learns by osmosis, or, most likely didn't read a page of this bill.

Jim Demint breaks down the 46 hours that Dick Durbin insists was enough time for Senators to read this week's 3,417 page omnibus spending bill.

Totally Weak

British do-gooders (and undoubted nanny-state supporters) tell mythical elf-man to slim down.

Here's my question: Given that this chap has been around for hundreds upon hundreds of years, who are we to impose our notions of health on him? Maybe we could learn a lesson or two from the guy, or at least not get on his case about it.

Wait, what?

John Edwards takes an individual rights view of the Second Amendment? Not that I would ever vote for the guy, and I'm sure there's a ton and a half of hedging going on in his mind as he says it, but still, interesting.


Meanwhile, over in St. Paul...

Hamline University suspends a student for advocating concealed carry on campus. The university wants him to undergo a psychiatric evaluation. I think their real concern should be getting him into a composition class. With a tact chaser.
