    * The ABA is gearing up for its annual meeting in Chicago. I’ll note (with a lack of surprise) that I was not invited. [ABA Journal]

    * At that meeting, the ABA will once again consider accrediting foreign law schools. American lawyers have shouted down this idea twice before, but if the ABA has a chance to screw over its constituents it simply must keep trying. [National Law Journal]

    * Here, we see NYU’s Dean Richard Revesz defend the economic value of an “expensive” NYU Law degree without actually using any economic facts or statistics. [Constitutional Daily]

    * Please tell me this Ted Cruz character isn’t going to become an ongoing part of my life. [Mother Jones]

    * Only lawyers could complicate the word “shall” to the point that it loses all meaning. [Legal Blog Watch]

    * I thought casinos killed you with the expensive gambling, not the free alcohol. [Overlawyered]

    * Another positive review for Mark Hermann’s Inside Straight. [New York Personal Injury Law Blog]

    * An interesting conversation with NYU professor David Garland about the death penalty. It won’t kill you to check it out. [Cruel and Unusual]
