According to Answers.com, Modern Rock Tracks is Billboard Magazine's Top 40 Chart for alternative rock. It has been around since 1988, and in all that time only two songs, "What's the Frequency, Kenneth," by R.E.M. and Dani California by the Red Hot Chili Peppers have debuted at number one. That puts them in the same elite class as our number one this week, the new paper by Jack Balkin (below right)
and Sanford Levinson, and the subject of yesterday's paean. Larry Solum (left) had even more erudite reaction (assuming my reaction was erudite at all) to the paper over at Legal Theory Blog. (I have no real reason to post Larry's picture, other than (1) I already posted pictures of Balkin and Levinson; (2) this picture of Larry is SO much better than the one that used to appear on the USD page; (3) he looks MAHVELOUS; and (4) to show that what you see on the right - the Legal Theory
Blog logo - is NOT a picture of Larry.)
