    * And of course, that class should be taught by Marc Randazza. [The Legal Satyricon]

    * Bill Maher v. Donald Trump. Offer v. Consideration. Comedian v. D-bag. This will make for a fun issue spotter for any spring term contracts classes. [Josh Blackman’s Blog]

    * Can you prove that a getting a legal aid lawyer actually helps? Are you sure? [Boston Globe]

    * Birthers are now coming after Chief Justice Roberts. You know what they’re not coming after? Book learning! (zing) [Huffington Post]

    * Professor Richard Sander’s new book (affiliate link) argues that affirmative action actually hurts the students it intends to help. Release the partisan bickering! [The Atlantic via ProfessorBainbridge]
