Miss Lithwick Tells You What You Need to Know

In a move long over due, I just added Dahlia Lithwick to the list at the right. She's one of my two favorite columnists in the world. She writes about law and the Supreme Court in a way that is interesting and understandable for anyone. Her stuff is always up to the minute, likeable, and worth reading. now if slate would only put her articles in podcast form.

...Oh, as for Ms. Lithwick, our pal Gorj. has the secret hots for her and wishes they were married.

O.k. I do not get the miss dowdy NY Times thang, but even though I detst all things crimson from South of the Mason Dixon line color me a big fan of Jann Crawford Greenburg. Yowsah! I know I know she's married and has at least 1 kid. U Chicago is just a wierd nerdy sexy vibe.

polly, I'm glad you added that Lithwick link. I think that, from what I have read so far, her discussion about the law really brings home the importance of ethics. That is, it could really help my students realize that it isn't merely a matter of letting folks do what the want but rather our ethical perspective has an effect on our response to various legal and extra-legal life conditions. I look forward to reading the article on death sentences; my class just read arguments for and against.

And, I do get the Dowd thing, she's hot.

well, i wasn't exactly pitching Dowd to you as a chance to read 'what a hot girl thinks'. she's just damn good...and, uh, i guess she's pretty good lookin' too.

Ahh, but as far as I am concerned hotness is directly porportional to intelligence and ability.

It is great to see someone who knows she has something to say and says it. I am finding women have such a different viewpoint - the right one. I love Dowd too. She says it like it is. Anyway, if you get a chance, check out my opinions and stories on my blog:
