This Space For Rent

A few weeks ago I participated as a commenter at a University of Alabama FedSoc event on David Bernstein's new book, Rehabilitating Lochner.  David was kind enough to send me the totally cool T-shirt pictured in this post.  (I couldn't figure out how to rotate the photo; to correct, please manually turn your computer monitor 90 degrees.)  I was very happy to wear it to class, especially since my usual teaching wardrobe consists of a wide range of (pseudo)-hipster T-shirts under a tasteful blazer.  Thank you, David!

Two further observations.  First, I won't entertain comments from the peanut gallery dwelling on self-promotion and its excesses.  I love the shirt, and am now thinking about having a set of track suits done up with some kind of "Agnostic Age" or "First Amendment Institutions" (still forthcoming!) design, so that anyone who commented on the draft of either book and I can get together and stroll the lobby of the AALS conference next year looking like the cast of Beat Street.  Second, I am an equal-opportunity billboard.  If Dean Chemerinsky has a T-shirt for The Conservative Assault on the Constitution, I will be happy to wear it on alternate days from David's shirt.  And if Robert Blomquist can figure out how to work a printshop or press-on decal machine, I'd be ecstatic.

I turned my computer monitor 90 degrees, resulting in an upside down photo.

I was surprised that there were no comments to this post. But then this in the post:

"First, I won't entertain comments from the peanut gallery dwelling on self-promotion and its excesses."

might explain why.

Perhaps rehabilitating T-Shirts for law prof-authors is not excess self-promotion.
