STEPHEN BREYER AND THE BLOG

Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring today, which makes this a good time to recall Justice Breyer's interaction with the blog at the Sun Valley Writers Conference back in 2014, when the blog explained some of the finer points of constitutional law to him. Here's the original post.

DB and Breyer

COMMENTS UPDATE

The comments still don't work. I have attempted to contact Typepad support about this but I'm not confident that I'm getting through. If anybody out there has any ideas -- other than "Try hitting the computer" -- about how to correct this problem, feel free to email me. Meanwhile, if you are experiencing Internal Comment Buildup (ICB) and fear you might explode, you could try alleviating the pressure by going to a public place such as a Starbucks and expressing your comments to random individuals. "I saw them open for Whitesnake!" you might say. Or "I blame the squirrels!" Please do not mention my name.

ABOUT THE COMMENTS

We have been advised (thanks, Jeff and Jim) that the comments on today's posts are closed. We don't know why; we've checked the "open" box on all of them. We will of course fire judi, but beyond that we don't have a plan, other than to hope that eventually this problem goes away. This is also our approach to medical care and plumbing.
