Incompatibility of Blogging and Law School

by PG

Earlier today, I was running a search for cases relevant to my moot court argument -- the outline of which is due in, oh, just three and a half hours -- and I saw a case that was somewhat useful if one was writing about free speech and universities, but really freaking useless if one was writing about a fictional rapper's right to sing about getting an STD from Mandy Moore.

Yet instead of re-reading Hustler Magazine v. Falwell, a case that I normally love, I'm Shephardizing and checking the precedents cited in Hollister v. Tuttle. Hopefully my moot court partner continues his goal-oriented way of life and doesn't take up time-wasting activities like reading this blog, or I'm in trouble.

I'm going to need my blogging privileges taken away more completely and a lot earlier this semester. Intellectual curiosity is so overrated.

UPDATE: But cuteness is not. Between young Volokh and the duck, this may be more than Heidi Bond (whose blog has undergone a makeover) could handle.

As your moot court partner, I'm going to have to crack the whip! More Jerry Falwell, less fun!
