A few things before I retire to my family's vacation manse in Rockport, Texas for a week of reading Daubert v. Merrell Dow and progeny:
1.) Congratulations to Prof. Torts, ah, what the heck, Melissa Essary on her appointment as Dean of Campbell University School of Law, which is in North Carolina. My Baylor readers have known about her new gig for a couple weeks, but the alumni community might not have known. So, in one year, we will have lost Bill Underwood (presidency of Mercer University), Bill Trail (retiring), Melissa Essary, and there are rumors of others. Baylor is truly at a crossroads. But Prof. ConLaw is, was, and always will be.
2.) On the Friday before Spring Break, let the record reflect that the following happened: in PC, four memos were handed out; in Evidence, there was a booting-and-see-me-after-class, another person got a memo, and the entire class got a memo. Enjoy your vacation the Baylor way.
