law day

While the socialists and rebels among us run amok today, the more civilized among us will be celebrating Law Day.

Each year on May 1st, Law Day provides an opportunity for everyone to reflect on our legal heritage, on the role of law, and on the rights and duties which are the foundation of peace and prosperity for all mankind.

It's easy for me. I recognize the day by just showing up for work and doing law-type things. I think I'll go pay my parking tickets as well.

Try to obey the law today, ok?

Michele at a small victory has a suggestion for today: May 1st should celebrate the rule of law. After all, [Read More]


All the laws or just the important ones? Because I don't think they meant me with some of the laws.

I'm here, doing my part for law day: being a lawyer, clerking for a judge, and reading blogs...

Does that apply in states where there are still sodomy laws?

Has anyone ever stopped to think how much more difficult life would be if we actually followed all the laws currently on the books? Particularly in the South? Sure, the rule of law is great as a concept and works out fairly well on the whole, but as Lord Acton, Thomas Jefferson and Douglas Adams have pointed out, laws wind up being inevitably controlled, to a large degree, by jackholes. Poor Justice, constantly besieged by buttnubbins...

I visited the indymedia links and the thought struck me that indymedia is very much like Coast to Coast radio (http://www.coasttocoastam.com/). What unites them is the fact that a very large number of people have broken bullshit-detectors. The difference is that the indymedia folks are looking for evil monsters under the bed, while the Coast-to-Coast audience is looking for exciting monsters everywhere.

Oh wait, at the risk at appearing to flipflop, I suddenly find a maze to be a great idea. Just add some nonlethal (but painful) traps, a few wandering monsters and such and it'll be perfect!

"Johnny, do you want to go back into the maze?" "NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!"

Hmm, I doubt anyone will implement my suggestions.
