It’s been impossible to avoid thinking about the Casey Anthony verdict, but I couldn’t bring myself to write an obligatory blog post about it, not least because there are already hundreds of law blog posts out there saying roughly the same thing.
So, instead, some interesting reading, only one of which is Casey Anthony-related:
- Jack Balkin on the constitutionality of the debt ceiling;
- Robert Ambrogi and Steve Matthews on optimizing law firm websites;
- Sasha Says on when rape victims lie;
- Stephen Hough on there being no such thing as a difficult piano piece;
- Jeralyn at TalkLeft on the beyond a reasonable doubt standard;
- How to beat a roomful of chess grandmasters too oblivious to see an obvious parlor trick;
- Know the joke about a trained monkey doing a better job than you? I’m sure neither you nor I will ever take a self-portrait as great as this one by a wild crested black macaque monkey;
- Penn & Teller aren’t often fooled by anything, so, when they are, it’s worth watching.
