    Louis Armstrong on such a question regarding jazz:

    “If you gotta ask, you’ll never know.”

    “If you still have to ask, shame on you”

    Just do better next time. (That’s what my father used to say when I brought home an excellent report card.)

    I appreciate that, for the most part, posts are brief and to the point. So for those who are keeping it brief I say “keep it up” and to those who tend to be a little more verbose I echo Shag from Brookline’s father when I say “Just do better next time.”

  3. Joe says:

    I find it interesting (why? because I’m interested! others find this stuff boring) and think the people who provide the posts tend to do so in a reasoned sort of way, including when I don’t necessarily agree with them. The quick posts are good as quick things to think about but the longer ones have value.

    Shag has good advice.

  4. Jarod Bona says:

    I like the substantive legal discussion, and will read those that I find interesting. But more than anything, I really like the law review tables of contents. As a (perhaps rare) practicing attorney that likes to read academic work, this site provides me with an easy way to keep up with new articles.

    I am charged with privacy compliance for a government agency. It helps me to perform that function by cultivating a deeper academic understanding of the area. I frequently will be made aware of a topic or an author that I can then go review articles that I otherwise would have missed.

    I value reading about emerging topics as well to try and anticipate where trends are going to prepare my agency for the future.
