Despite giving me horrid grades, your classes totally rocked when you taught at Vanderbilt. In fact, your classes (Crim. Con and, especially, Fed Cts and Search & Seizure Law (S&S), were probably the only damn thing I could stay awake for in law school. And I will say, despite bombing the S&S final - I should have known when I finished in half the time - in the real world I use S&S "thought" more than perhaps any other single thing. Hope you've hooked up with the NY S&S guru Barry Kamins now that you've made NYU your home (where I hope you are lending your talents to their allegedly vaunted Clinic - get Sue Kay a job there as she was great). Hope you are well. Peace. -SB
