Non-Sequiturs: 07.14.15

* A positive review of Go Set a Watchman (affiliate link) from Professor Brophy. I haven’t read it, but it strikes me as a weird choice to make Doctor Manhattan a racist in this one. [The Faculty Lounge] * Standard gun nut operating procedure is to stay quiet after a mass shooting, but this guy decided to explain why Dylann Roof didn’t take advantage of a “loophole” to avoid a background check. And he’s right. “Loophole” suggests there was a drafting mistake as opposed to an intentional, cynical effort to gut the one gun regulation pretty much everybody agrees on. [National Review] * Everyone knows that the federal government is comprised of three equal branches. But, why do you think that? The Constitution certainly never says that. An interesting question. [Concurring Opinions] * Arts students work harder than law students. Let that sink in. [Legal Cheek] * The Economist just can’t help itself from writing contrarian reviews. They’re like hipsters if hipsters were old-timey Tories with handlebar mustaches and… actually, wait, is The Economist run by hipsters? [Lawyers, Guns & Money] * The Welsh government responded to an official inquiry in Klingon. Which, admittedly, is easier to understand than Welsh. [Lowering the Bar] * Important practice tip when dealing with a new client: check out the last several complaints filed against them and search for a pattern. [What About Clients?]
