Jim Kacian appears to be dabbling in haiku one-liners, and the pair below

are from the newest roadrunner haiku journal, where you can also find an

interesting example from Ed Markowski, and much more to delight you.  If

you’ve studied dagosan’s haiku primer, you already know that Japanese haiku

have traditionally been written in one vertical column.

tiny check Martin Grace, a/k/a The RiskProf manages to worry about how he might look in a 

hard hat or scrubs, while asking whether state-appointed consumer advocates really benefit



tiny check  Prof. Bainbridge wants to see the money —  “As of now, I’m not saying anything nice

about the President or his policies until I get paid. So there.” [This is another instance

where Prof. B could use the protection of an Implied Disclaimer Notice.]


“tinyredcheck”  Speaking of Prof. B, his post on Corporate Social Responsibility may

give us a glimpse at his “distinctive and usefulfaith-based persepective on the law —

incorporate and you can ignore the Eight Beatitudes/Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5 – 7).  

It seems, Jesus would have made a terrible Catholic CEO (or conservative law professor).


boxer smf Mike “Fedster” Cernovich at C&F appears to be asserting a “liberty” to kick butt when

other airline passengers get out of line.  Count me in the “least restrictive alternative”

school of thought on this particular liberty.


tiny check  Speaking of one-liners, Steve Martin’s letter to Johnny Carson is a fine tribute.  I will

miss Mr. Carson, and also miss the days when Americans of all ages and parties (I’m not sure we knew

we had ideologies back then) watched the same late-night show and could laugh about it together the

next morning.
