Commence Justice

Associate Justice Antonin Scalia gave the commencement address at his granddaughter’s high school graduation the other day. It is well worth your time.

Saturday Open Thread

We had a graduate hooding ceremony for our Masters in Forensic Psychology program yesterday and I was reminded again of why I love doing what I do. A particularly brilliant student (I hesitate to say the perfect graduate student, but close) asked a colleague and me to hood her — as her favorite professors […]

Repulsors are sufficiently repulsed

Robert Downey Jr. has been set upon by the perpetually aggrieved again. During the press junket for Avengers: Age of Ultron (coming soon to a theater near you) he was asked about comments regarding comic book movies that were made by Mexican filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

Enjoy. Sure, the first sentence should have read, “My friend Eric Porvaznik sent me this article at the end of October,” but […]

In Class with Floyd --

Today in my Criminology class (a bit outside my bailiwick, but we had a faculty shortage) we will discuss a genre of criminological theories called “Critical Criminology” — read “Marxist/socialist” theories… in other words… the system is a sham to protect the 1% and criminal laws don’t serve the common good, but merely to oppress.
