    “In the spring … no law review wanted it.”

    Hmmm … does the expression “ahead of your time” ring a bell? Without a substantial rewrite, bring it up to date with a little extra emphasis on the current problem and send it out again. But instead of law reviews, send it to The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Playboy, and a few others that publish long articles.

    Those guys probably pay better than law reviews.

    The rejection from the Kentucky Journal of Equine and Gold Cases Law must have been particularly disappointing.

    You can get PAID to write articles?

    Keep fighting the good fight. I wish I was back in law school just to keep up with you. Your live blogging from last week was refreshing. Cheers.

    Dear Gerard,

    I have taken interest in your opinions of the recent debt ceiling debacle and even read your chat interview on the Washington Post link.

    I am not a student of law, mainly economics, but it seems as if I still cannot get a clearer and simpler answer on the 14th Amendment, Sec 4, and Perry vs US.

    What I would like to know is how does Section 4 and Perry vs. US play a role into this fiasco? Does it dictate anything in terms of who is wrong, who is right in government today, and if so who is and who isn’t?

    Does Section 4 really force Congress, and if not Congress then the President (?), to pay the debt? And, how does Perry vs. US back-up your answer to that?

    Sorry for simpleness of the questions, and I am not looking for a long answer that takes up a lot of your time, you must be a busy person. Just an answer in simple terms, though, would clarify a lot of things for me would be of great help.
