drstrangeloveIt’s a summer school session in the faculty lounge and things are … unruly. Yes, Professors Epstein and Yoo hit the big topics: the Iran deal and the conclusion of the “John Doe” investigations in Wisconsin. Along the way, however, they touch on everything from whether Antonin Scalia is a bad influence on law students, how to stay safe at an Oakland A’s game, whether New York City or Chicago produces the better pizza (Richard is troublingly agnostic), and how David Brooks is exploiting the tax code. So, yes: we were out of decaf in the faculty lounge today.It’s a Law Talk tour de force. Listen in!

    Regarding safety at hockey games, the NHL added netting above the glass about a decade ago precisely because a girl in the stands was killed after being hit by a puck that was deflected on the ice up over the glass.

    Baseball and hockey are not inherently lethal games, neither for spectators or participants, EXCEPT if you’re not paying attention. If you’re not going to the game to watch the game, please stay home.

    And as a volunteer youth coach, may I also suggest that if you’re going to drug the crap out of your son because, well because he acts like a boy, don’t drop him on my baseball field. I don’t want a child zoned out in the line of fire. (And then listen to you whine because I never play Johnny in the infield.)

    What was the Chief Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes quote? Everyone stomped on it.

    Troy, I laughed very hard at doing the Nigerian Finance scam on Kerry “Because let’s face it, he’d fall for it.”. Laughed almost as hard at Epstein’s defense of his food choices. “It wasn’t four blocks…”

    Man, Law Talk would be so much more interesting if you would just occasionally plow some new ground! This is like the 4th or 5th time this week alone I’ve heard people going on about the practical implications concerning mis-translations within Roman javelin law.

    Fair criticism. We’ll never bring it up again. It’s a topic best handled by cable news.

    So you did see the CNN speculation that Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was brought down by a frightened remote islander who threw a javelin at the giant metal bird glinting in the night sky. And yea, who’d be culpable in that scenario?

    I don’t mind the excessive javelin law, but it is crowding out what is really important: Roman Riparian Law.

    (Seriously, a couple of years ago Richarrd Epstein made this big deal about how the Supreme Court totally screwed up water rights because they didn’t understand Riparian law, and then just left it there. Some of us really would like the full explanation!)
