Frank has now deluged us with Too Much Information on Kirksey v. Kirksey. Alas, Casto and Ricks' research lends no support to the pet theory of some students who read the case. To wit, whenever I teach this case, at least one student is convinced that Isaac was a bit sweet on Angelico (Antillico), that his love was unrequited and that he avenged himself through eviction. But the research doesn't disprove the theory either . . . . And so, the Limerick survives.
From a house to a hut to the street
Was the course of Ms. Kirksey's retreat.
She could not recover
From her in-law (her lover?)
Who'd nakedly promised a suite.
