I started another inpatient rotation today, this time for a whopping six weeks. If you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t be alarmed; the admission and discharge rate on this service is enormous, and sleep will be a premium.

If anyone wants a copy of the transcript of today’s Bush v. Gore Supreme Court arguments in PalmPilot Doc format, here you go. (A regular PDF file, as well as the text document I made to then make the Palm Doc, are also available.)

Alan Brinkley, a brilliant history scholar from my alma mater, has what I think is a fantastically-written article on Slate today regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s descent into the political trenches, and specifically, Scalia’s unprecedented “press release” which conveyed the notion that deliberation is futile, the game’s over.
