First They Came For The Subway Advertisements...

I read parts of Philip K. Dick’s novel “The Man in the High Castle,” back in high school. It’s about an alternate universe where the Axis wins World War II and, you know, it’s Philip K. Dick so it’s good. I didn’t know they were making a television show about it until somebody sent me a picture of a New York City… »Tuesday 4:19pm11/24/15 4:19pm


War on Drugs, Civil Forfeiture, or The Sixth Amendment? A Supreme Court ‘F**k, Marry, Kill’

My favorite case of this term was argued this week at the Supreme Court, and it made me feel stupid. I thought it was a fantastic opportunity for the Court to rethink the rights of the accused. Instead, it’s probably going to be a unanimous decision to further neuter those rights. I was foolish to think that it could… »11/12/15 3:29pm11/12/15 3:29pm

We Should Cap The Voting Age At 60 To Stop Old People From Ruining Everything

In USA Today, Glenn Reynolds, the fantastic blogger of Instapundit fame, suggested the the voting age should be raised to 25.

Missouri Football Strike Proves Athletes Are Our Universities' Most Valuable Commodities 

Late Saturday night, while most Americans were fully embedded in their couch’s butt groove after a day of some of the year’s best college football games, a group of athletes decided to embark on the most important goal line stand of their lives.

University Releases Orwellian Social Media Policy, Hopes Students Are Too Dumb To Fight

The University of Missouri School of Law has released a new social media policy. It appears to be written by the Student Bar Association itself, which might explain why it is so bad. It is easily the worst social media policy I have ever seen. It is probably the worst social media policy you have seen. It is so bad… »11/04/15 4:08pm11/04/15 4:08pm

Evil Will Always Triumph Because Grantland Is Dumb

What we want to click on and what we want to read can be two very different things. Everybody who works on the internet (which is a subset that is rapidly approaching everybody) understands and accepts this at some level. Old people like to think the disconnect between “clickbait” and whatever musty 18-part New York… »10/31/15 3:59am10/31/15 3:59am
