We want to take a moment here to recognize a man who was our classmate, our colleague, our blogfather, and of course our good friend, Dan Markel. He taught us not just how to be scholars, but how to be a community of scholars.
Look, words are not enough. Let's all think about building some more lasting tribute. His family, his students, his institution all I'm sure will want to recognize the things he contributed to them. Speaking just for myself, I'd like to see us, as scholars, make something that reflects and continues what he did for us. Too soon now to say exactly what. But I'm sure many others must feel the same. Let's all give it some thought.
