Thank you to Dan, Dave, and the rest of the CO Gang for inviting me to make a guest appearance here. I suspect I’ll spend much of my first week commenting on the Alito hearing, which connects nicely to my scholarly and teaching interests, but whatever the nature of our discussion, I am very much looking forward to taking part in this virtual community of legal reflection.
In the weeks ahead I will try to take my responsibilities here seriously, knowing that CO’s reputation for analysis and insight is both important and the product of many individuals’ hard work. I fully expect also to have some fun, which should be easy given the wit and good humor of my co-bloggers.
Incidentally, the youngster in the photo with me is my son Steven, who will be 4 next month. Laura and I also have another son, Michael Jr., who is 5.
