Kurt Lash on Reconstruction (2): Is the Fifteenth Amendment an Embarrassment?

For the Symposium on Kurt Lash, The Reconstruction Amendments: The Essential Documents (University of Chicago Press, 2021)(2 vols.).  Having offered very general remarks about Kurt Lash’s valuable collection of materials on the gestation of the Reconstruction Amendments, let me now turn to the specific history of the Fifteenth Amendment that he has now made available to us.  Is it, in its own way, an embarrassment for the contemporary lawyer or constitutional theorist, especially if she ...

In control

Is this a want or a need? Do you know anyone who has managed to gain control over things outside of their grasp? Honking at traffic serves no purpose other than to express a need to control the uncontrollable. Why do we work so hard to try to capture control over things that are clearly not in our control? And what would happen if we stopped trying and worked on the things we can influence instead?

Ken Paxton Shoulda Hired a Legal Philosopher

It has been a morning of overlapping consensus at the Supreme Court: in both California v. Texas and Fulton v. Philadelphia, the Justices found their way to a broad (7-2 or 9-0) resolution of questions far narrower than what the plaintiffs in these lawsuits had hoped to win from a far-right court. In the case of California v. Texas—and what an appropriate name for what is essentially a purely partisan lawsuit, the latest long-shot effort to unravel the Affordable Care Act through judicial acti...

In Praise of Evil Thoughts

Freedom of thought means freedom from social tyranny, the capacity to think for oneself, to encounter even shocking ideas without shrinking away from them. That aspiration is a core concern of the free speech tradition. It is not specifically concerned with law, but it explains some familiar aspects of the First Amendment law we actually have – aspects that the most prevalent theories of free speech fail to capture. It explains the prohibition of compelled speech, and can clarify the perennial...

Kurt Lash and the Canons of Constitutional Law

For the Symposium on Kurt Lash, The Reconstruction Amendments: The Essential Documents (University of Chicago Press, 2021)(2 vols.). In 1998, when Sandy Levinson and I wrote about the constitutional canon, we identified three basic kinds of canons. The pedagogical canon focuses on materials that to be taught in law schools (or universities). The academic theory canonfocuses on materials necessary (or helpful) for debates in constitutional theory. The cultural literacy canonincludes materials n...

Non-machinable surcharge

I got a marketing letter from a colleague yesterday. Not a sales pitch, just an update on what they were up to. I was delighted to discover that this mass mailing had a hand-lettered address on it, with little bits of water color for fun. It was slightly irregularly shaped, requiring an extra stamp because it wasn’t machinable. Inside, in addition to a personal (and personalized) note, there was a gift card for an ice cream cone. But the coolest part was that the card wasn’t from a national c...

Rapala Continues Fishing for Attention

Over the past dozen years, we’ve been admiring Rapala’s annual creative billboard campaign that continues to maintain the same eye-catching look and feel. Love the white canvas, the red stylized Rapala brand name, the Original Floating lure, and a creative and often humorous attention-getting term or phrase in black ink, sandwiched in between (and hooked by) the lure and the brand name: In case you’re wondering, I’ve listed my 2021 favorites in order above, with “Smooth whopperator” receiving...

Lucky breaks

Almost every project comes in a little bit late and a little bit over budget. When things break, the breaks are rarely lucky ones. Part of the reason is that in proposing the project we made our best guess and predicted the predictable. If we didn’t, the project would probably never get approved. Optimists bring an expectation of possibility and goodwill. But they’re also aware of the math of coordination. Hiccups multiply. Betting on lucky isn’t nearly as productive as simply establ...

We’re changing our name – why isn’t everyone cheering?

There are many reasons why an organization would change itself over the course of its history. There might be a merger (think FedEx Office, formerly known as Kinkos), or the name may be outdated or even offensive (think Aunt Jemima). In most cases, the organization has evolved enough that their original name just doesn’t quite fit anymore. This is a huge deal for the organization. It can take a year or two to identify the right name and execute the legal due diligence to protect the name. From ...

Abstain from abstaining

Even when you’re not completely certain. Because we can never be certain about the future. So we show up for the work, do the reading, engage with the problem. The challenge is to find a point of view if we don’t have one yet. The exception is simple: if, after being well informed, you are willing to accept every outcome, you do us all a favor when you stand down. Hiding doesn’t help us.

Macmillan cites Igor’s CEO as coining a buzzword.

“VANILLACIDE: when an original idea or plan is repeatedly changed until it becomes less interesting and unique than it was first intended to be. Vanillacide is most often used in business contexts, where it refers to the scenario of new and creative proposals undergoing a series of changes in order to make them generally acceptable to people, but in the process becoming so ‘watered down’ that they lose their original individuality and appeal.The term vanillacide was coined  by Steve Manning, Chi...
