Will nitwits rule us all?

I moved to Minnesota during an election year. I was not particularly thrilled about the results of that particular election on either a nationwide or statewide level. Most of the candidates that I liked lost that year. But since I had not done much work on any candidates' election, I figured that I should not complain about the results given that I had not put any effort for my folks to win.

Good press for a good friend.

I have a big post coming but in the meantime, please take a look at this post at Minnesota Litigator. It discusses a big win for a good friend of Mr. Torvik's and mine, Martin Fallon.  It's nice to see one great person/lawyer (i.e., Seth Leventhal grand poobah of Minnesota Litigator) write about another great person/lawyer.

Wait. . . What?

I really want to share my thoughts on the whole United Airlines passenger removal fiasco, and I have a post about human resources that I think will be better than the subject matter implies (a low bar, but a bar nevertheless). But I am pretty busy at work so those will have to wait because I learned something today that captures the attention in a way that those future posts may not.

Ted Cruz will never be President of the United States of America

Astute Reader(s)™ of this blog undoubtedly noticed that we went over a year without posting anything. One of my regrets about that period is that I had a draft post about how Ted Cruz will never be elected President of the United States.  There are many reasons for why Senator Cruz will never be elected, I will address two.

The Supreme Court and abortion: how has the plan to overturn Roe been working so far?

For reasons that I prefer not to ponder (cough-age-cough), I am not very well informed about popular culture.  For example, I do not know which political commentators are popular and which are not. Prior to Monday, I had never heard of Tomi Lahren. In fact, I had never heard of the "digital network" TheBlaze, where Ms. Lahren apparently hosts a nightly show in which she acts as a "liberal agitator."

Bracket, rankings, and money oh my!

So the NCAA 2017 Division One Men's Basketball Tournament began this week. As computer-based workers stop doing their jobs and start watching basketball, it seems like a good time to look at another famous ranking that came out this month. I refer to the US News and World Report's annual ranking of Best Law Schools.
