Law and reality in publishing (seldom the same thing) from the author's side of the slush pile, with occasional forays into military affairs, censorship and the First Amendment, legal theory, and anything else that strikes me as interesting.
Today's "unintentional irony" award goes to the Supremes. Compare Vieth (2004) (PDF, 1.75mb) (partisan gerrymandering is not justiciable) with Bush, 531 U.S. 98 (2000) (partisan-like, outcome-determinative decision on counting votes). At least they're consistent. Consistently off the wall, but consistent nonetheless.
