If you can get a copy of it for dirt cheap on Amazon, it may be good to orient yourself with it. Especially if you are considering law review or a journal in law school. The attorneys in my group are adament about the fact that knowing the basics of the Bluebook can go a long way---but no one wants to come off as the person that knows too much hah


Thanks for the info. I'll have to look into it for sure.

"Hillary will win the female vote" and "Hillary will win a majority of votes cast by female voters" mean the exact same thing to anyone who is used to political jargon. (this is coming from an ardent feminist)

Lessons learned? Do not step away from TLS/if you do, check LSAC before refreshing TLS.

Agreed. I think EnderWiggin was just going for an exercise in doucheyness. "We allow room for the actual nuanced reality that we know exists." I should let my boy David Foster Wallace run through that statement, but he's dead. :(

Anyway, "winning the female vote" is not tantamount to "all females voted for Hilary." lol

Yeah I know. I broke Hume's law pretty blatantly there, but was trying to making a point about how generalized language in political news reporting glosses over important distinctions that we know are there.

If you win an election does that mean everyone voted for you?

Is anyone else wondering why Ben lied to us last week about scores coming soon?

Does he work for LSAC? Is this part of a nefarious social experiment?

I don't deny the douchyness (douchiness)? claim there. Waiting for Grey is making me anxious and angry.
