Anyway, while I was there I saw posters for a lecture this afternoon by Eugene Volokh on the structure of slippery-slope arguments. And I was caught up in a millor a scrum, maybe? anyway, a swirling crowdof students and visitors and New York policeman.
Eugene Volokh rates this kind of action? Turns out that the mayor was on campus for another event, which was, so I was told, the cause of all the fracas. Or rumpus. But meanwhile, the posters for Volokh’s talk read, as I remember: “Founder of The Volokh Conspiracy blog and Gary T. Schwartz Professor of Law at UCLA.”
I wonder how the Schwartz family feels about that. Indeed, I wonder how UCLA law school feels. For that matter, I wonder how I feel. Since when has even a blog as interesting as the The Volokh Conspiracy trumped, for a law-school audience, a chair at a major law school and all the speaker’s academic publications?
A fascinating change in the culture of things.
