After reading through the cases on the establishment clause, I get really sick of all the dissenting (read: LOSING) justices trying to make their case by quoting President Washington ("...with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God") and any other litany of practices and quotes from the Revolutionary Period. Can we please also note that they wanted to count black people as 3/5 of a person? The Framers were not infallible paragons of virtue.

I'm loving the articles you posted regarding how bleak the future of attorneys is (seriously!). It sucks, but I like to know where I stand so I can formulate a game plan.

Anyways, good luck on finals! The other night I sent a cracked out facebook message to a friend regarding how "Federalists" and "The Federalist Society" were quite different. I was very upset. Oh, Finals, how I hate thee...
