A Word to the Wise: More on Comments

I urge my law students to get into the habit of reading footnotes: often the most intriguing issues and deeper questions will lurk there, buried in not-quite plain sight (albeit smaller fonts).

The same is true of comments on this blog. Since this is a (highly) moderated list, I'll do my best to keep the comments limited to those I consider worth your reading. As some of you have already discovered, I also have a tendency to comment on myself, often rather archly. (Think "The Word" segment on The Colbert Report.) I'm not sure this is the best strategy for a blog, and I may reconsider it down the road, but it fits well with my occasionally absurdist sensibility, as well as my inclination to reflect the fragmented state of my own consciousness, and I'll try it for now.

hmmm: "The Wise"; maybe my term for this blog's equivalent to Colbert's "The Heroes". I'll give it a try. Let me know when it gets old.

Someone should do the same for Colbert.

If I've left any doubt, I consider the Daily Show and, to a lesser degree, Colbert, essential daily viewing.

The Charlie Rose Show is also strongly recommended, but not necessarily essential. They run opposite here in Madison; thank goodness for TiVo and its local cable equivalent.

And with that, I bid a fond adieu to the "no television in our house" crowd, some of whom might otherwise like me. I'll miss you!--TWB
