Judges and Umpires

As the spring semester comes to a close, Professors Epstein and Yoo wrestle with the big questions in the faculty lounge: Should Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court nominees pacify nervous conservatives? Is an 8-member SCOTUS a crisis? Have Republicans finally figured out a way to beat Obamacare in the courts?

And, most important, who do the boys predict will be competing in the World Series? (Even though we spotted them a couple of months in the regular season, they’re still probably wrong).

    Penfold: Where can I order one of those jerseys?

    Wish I could offer them. Unfortunately our offerings on made on demand and a quality twill jersey would run between $55 and $75 and would require upfront purchases.

    Great show. So informative. However, the Royals (WSC) had a 2-1 series vs the White Sox IN Chicago. I think the Royals will stand in the way of the White Sox in the AL Central.

    I’m surprised that Richard was so impressed by Trump’s list. Making a list is a very interim “accomplishment.” Trump immediately diminished the accomplishment by saying the he would expand the list, which basically means: he will choose someone from the list or someone who is not on the list, which narrows down his choice to “some living human.” Even if he promised to nominate from the list, he’s contradicted every other statement (e.g., self-funding, publishing more policy papers, etc.), what is a promise from Trump worth?

    So, Trump’s list is better than terrible, but it’s hardly worth the paper it’s printed on.

    This is a question for Troy Senik:

    Does Richard ever breathe during one of his discourses? I don’t think I’ve ever heard him pause to take a breath . . .

    With your mention of Click and Clack I finally get that it’s a joke not only on the sound tappets make but also on Frick and Frack the comic ice skaters of the Ice Follies long ago. Considering that a friend’s mother called us Frick and Frack constantly in my youth and I was once briefly acquainted with Frack’s daughter (she said she was anyway and why would anyone lie about something like that?) that makes me a dead cert for the 2016 Dim Bulb Award. Thanx, Law Talk, you always come through for me.

    I’d just like to say Richard Epstein is lying about New Zealand, nothing he said is true, really New Zealand is a Gulaug akin to N. Korea, a desert literally and of intelligent discourse, come to New Zealand at your own risk!

    Also, any other New Zealand members down here? I’d be up for an Auckland meet-up, even if it is just the two of us.

    (Richard, your are ruining the best kept secret in the South Pacific!) Next time you are down stop by, I’ll provide the beer!
