"S has "rebutted" ... on that other blog that promotes his views sort of incessantly."

And has provided the Hilarious Quote of the Month in so doing.

To wit:

"Law professors have an obligation to teach students to think like lawyers, weigh evidence, and consider different arguments and different perspectives. We should not shut down discussion with swaggering declarations of the moral superiority of our own views or ad-hominem attacks against those with whom we disagree."

He published this on BL's blog, mind you.



Worse still, his post is laced with accusations, exaggerations and innuendo concerning those who disagree with his more indefensible views, and extremely short on facts - which he concedes are elusive, substituting therefor a series of links to works outside his expertise, as in "google for the dilettante."

Any wonder about the placement?


Now now - remember Oscar Wilde, referencing an ironical quip: “Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit." Though to be fair one should quote Wilde in full “Sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but the highest form of intelligence.”


S's latest blog post (over there) compares dated local coverage of the retention of HOPE scholarships with a likewise dated but comprehensive look by the NYT at retention of law school scholarships.

Geez ... it just gets weirder and weirder.
