Hammerin’ Harper

May 27th, 2015 by MC

I acknowledge that “Las Vegas Mormons With Flair,” is John Mansfield’s beat. However, in the midst of all his Brandon Flowers blogging, it must be pointed out that despite releasing a well-regarded solo album, Bro. Flowers isn’t even having the best month out of the small subset of young, famous Las Vegas Mormons. It’s not even close.

Update: He hit another home run tonight.

Eliminating troublesome aunts

May 22nd, 2015 by Bertie

Oh, I do say!

aunts

This is beastly. I suppose this must be that very odd American sense of humour, what? But it’s one thing to be pestered by one’s elder female relations, and quite another to actually entertain homicidal thoughts about the  dears. You’d never see anything like this in a civilised country like England. Sigh.

The difference between lawyers and law professors

May 21st, 2015 by Vader

Some law professors’ views on how a court is likely to rule on an issue are untainted by exposure to actual courts.

The Boy Scouts Ban Squirt Guns. What Should We Do About It?

May 20th, 2015 by Vader

The Boy Scouts of America are slowly succumbing to modernity.


According to recent BSA policy, the above picture is unkind and unsafe, unless the boy is wearing safety glasses and only pointing the super soaker at an approved target on an approved range.  Grinning while doing it has not yet been explicitly banned.

 

The BSA policy is being understandably mocked in the press. (more…)
