However interesting bush-bashing might be, how about some more statutory interpretion posts? I'd be particularly interested in your thoughts on the statute at issue in the Mass. v. EPA case. I think this is one instance in which "liberals" and textualists will agree-- the plain language requires the Secretary to act, and he must. I'm not a fan of the hippies leading the march against the EPA, but I think their legal argument is completely right.

Thanks for the input. It's hard to figure out what to do here, exactly. I watch my readership numbers, and people do seem to use this as a "what's up with statutes" page, which I'm happy to do, and I keep my eye out for interesting cases, of which lately there've been few. I'm not sure my purpose here is to write lengthy articles on pieces, but I'm certainly game for it when my interest is piqued. I'm happy for you to post about it in a comment, so please do so, by all means!
Yes, I've enjoyed the election results, but believe it or not I've not posted on most of it. I'm sure soon I'll be posting away on crummy statutes drafted by the incoming Congress, too! :-)
And, there's a new opinion I just got that looks quite interesting but I haven't digested it yet.
