HAPPY HALLOWEEN . . . You could say I don't have my law-related weblogging priorities in order. On a morning when President Bush is holding a press conference with his new Supreme Court nominee, Samuel Alito, I'm posting a picture of one of my kids, Sam, who wouldn't know President Bush from the Great Pumpkin. It's disgraceful, although it could be that Sam is on the right track . . .
Why the briefcase in the background? That's to put things in perspective with last year's photo, when Sam was dressed up like a tiny lawyer.
UPDATE FOR NEW YORK TIMES READERS: While it was nice to be honored in "Blogger Reaction to the Alito Nomination," it's a little puzzling since I didn't really have a reaction. I had to go to court. Now that I'm back, I've offered something more substantive in my next post, "Lawyers on Samuel Alito," which collects some anonymous comments about Alito from the Almanac of the Federal Judiciary.
