Law review articles: make them bloggier.

Law review articles are notoriously bad. They are self-indulgent and pompous. Authors usually go on and on about their private obsessions, and do not ever seem to acknowledge other points of view. They can be so silly!

The problem is not caused by the student editors. No, it is caused by pretentious lawprofs who refuse to engage with pertinent legal issues and instead go on and on about trivialities. And they are so sneering and condescending to their critics! They absolutley will not do what they most need to do, and that is explain complex legal issues in clear, down-to-earth language.

Law review articles should be more like blogs. None of these defects appear in blog writing! Look at my site, for instance. Would that all lawprof law review writers could be as honestly self-reflective as this blog.

UPDATE: Here is a funny picture of the American Idol judges! Simon has tape over his mouth. That is good, because he is as mean as Ted Kennedy. I love this picture. What a hoot!


UPDATE: I wish some of the more obnoxious commenters would stop posting nonsense about how I will not discuss the FICA statute. I have explained several times that it is very complex. Only partisans are saying that anything might be wrong with the NSA spying program. The Justice Department has persuasively argued that the president could not follow FICA because if he did, the program would have been unconstitutional. That is common practice and very logical. The matter is closed.

I am more than willing to listen to criticism. All of it will, however, be deleted.

UPDATE: I am thinking of doing a 365-minute podcast on the color orange. Why orange? Because yellow is too partisan. That is clear.

The Altmouse PodCast...in full Janice voice. That would be priceless.

You're not Irish, are you?

"The Justice Department has persuasively argued that the president could not follow FICA because if he did, the program would have been unconstitutional."

You mean FISA, not "FICA," you sorry, loam-brained excuse for a "professor."

To be fair, Nim, the President probably doesn't follow FICA either. I'm sure his money is all "sheltered" all over the place.

Ni,, you are making a nonargument. Whether it is FISA or FICA or FIFI, the same legal principle applies. I urge you to sharpen your reading comprehension skills.

Ooh, a 365-minute podcast...why didn't I think of that?

And BTW, I have determined that the letter 't' is partisan--my dog removed it from my laptop keyboard, which makes it incredibly hard to type.

I have always claimed to be a fair, impartial man, totally nonpartisan.
Yellow is my favorite color.
I can lie to myself no more - I am obviously partisan and we all know how bad that is.
Thank you, Ms. Altmouse. Because of you I now see the error of my ways.

We don't always agree, but I'm right behind you on this one. Tantalizingly close behind you, in fact. So close that you can feel my hot breath on your neck, and sense the animal urgency in my loins...

I guess there's nothing left to say but "Pro Jupiter, tu homo me adigis ad insaniam!"

Phila,
Take that filth back to your own blog, mister.

And Professor, why does the openly partisan seventh comment remain? I'm deeply offended and think you should consider shutting down comments altogeter if ou're going to let this sort of thing go on.

In RE: the ninth comment. I thought I was nonpartisan, Ms. Altmouse showed me I was partisan, I then apologized and repented, thereby reaching a blissful state of nonpartisanship. Ergo, the ninth comment, in attacking me, is actually the partisan comment and clearly needs to be deleted.

Truly, bob, you have a dizzying intellect, just like our blogmistress.

Bob, rest assured that the seventeenth comment on this thread has been deleted.
