Interview with new Harvard Law Review President

The Harvard Law Record has an interview with Andrew Crespo, the new president of the Harvard Law Review.  Crespo is the first Latino to be elected HLR president.  The interview can be found here.  My favorite exchange is this one:

Crespo:  . . . I think people think everyone here is a straight A student, that they don't sleep, and that Law Review is just for people who want to be judges and academics.

Record: And what is it, really?

Crespo: It's this tight community of 86 students that work together and become really good friends. I know that these are friendships that I will have for life, and that some of them I wouldn't have made if I weren't on Law Review.

As a former social chair of the Review, I'm glad to see its social life is not being neglected.  But are there still Twister tournaments?

I'm proud to say that Matt was my social chair, and he put Julie McCoy to shame in that role. But a tight community of 86 students who become really good friends for life? Perhaps the new President has breathed the head-spinning aroma of the Bluebook a bit too deeply.

Matt, there certainly weren't when I was there a half-dozen years ago. But when you were social chair? Alas, the heady mid-90's: crazy times.
I guess the real question is how come Twister never gets taken out to lighten up more faculty meetings these days...
