    Interesting that this article comes out the same week I learned that Chief Justice Roberts promptly checked himself into the hospital for "exhaustion" when he graduated Harvard Law magna cum laude (and managing editor of Law Review) in 1979.

    And interesting that when I was in law school, shortly thereafter, Georgetown was the nearby locale of the famous exam-time incident when a student freaked out in the law library, clasped a stack of books atop her head, ran up and down yelling that she was "a covenant running with the land," and then exited - never to be seen there again.

    Some folks are just born a generation too soon.
