Tech Tech Symposium on Criminal Law & the First Amendment

Texas Tech Law School and the Texas Tech Law Review are holding a symposium on April 8 that focuses on Criminal Law and the First Amendment.  I'll be speaking on Cyber Incitement on a panel entitled The First Amendment, the Internet, and Criminal Law.  I'm very honored that Professor Arnold Loewy asked me to attend this distinguished symposium, not least because I get to return home to West Texas for a weekend and perhaps consume some great Mexican food or a nice chicken fried steak.  Lubbock is just a few hours from the dusty and desolate West Texas oil field town of Iraan, Texas, where I grew up.   [Iraan has literary cred. It is mentioned in a sentence in the last few pages of Cormac McCarthy's All the Pretty Horses.  Larry McMurtry doesn't mention Iraan, but he captures the feel of it in the towns he describes in books like The Last Picture Show and Duane's Depressed.]
