Rotations

Happy June 3d. Because of LSA and other obligations, I'm a bit late in posting this, but I wanted to thank our May contributors and welcome our friends who will be joining us for June.

Please welcome Addie Rolnick (UNLV); Eduardo Penalver (U of Chicago); Jeff Lipshaw (Suffolk); Darrin Rosenblum (Pace); Will Baude (Stanford); and Cynthia Godsoe (Brooklyn).

Some of our guests from May may linger a few days but let's hope we see them around here again soon.

Finally, on the heels of a terrific weekend of intellectual exchange, let me offer a public word of thanks to my partner in crime, Carissa Hessick, for bearing the brunt of the work in organizing a really great gathering of folks for our 5th Annual Shadow Crim Prof Conference at LSA. Thanks Carissa!

P.S., as you may know, we're also hosting a series of intermittent posts from John Pfaff and Doug Berman, and they deserve to be acknowledged and thanked for their excellent contributions.

Jeez, anon, you need to get a life. As any of my peers, and more sadly, my supervisors, from law review days could attest, I couldn't bluebook my ass from my elbow, so to suggest that i'm half-assing my hyper-correctiveness confers far too much credit upon me :-)

" Dan was referring to our planned "Prawfs in 3-D" extravaganza this month."

Does that mean I'm going to have to go down to my local multi-plex and "forget" to return my glasses after seeing the latest extravaganza?

I think you read that wrong. Dan was referring to our planned "Prawfs in 3-D" extravaganza this month.

"June 3d"

This is a hypercorrection that drives me nuts. The only reason to write "3rd" as "3d" is because of the Bluebook's trademark pointlessness. But, in typical Bluebook fashion, the rules are different for text than for citations. In a regular textual sentence 3rd is the correct form. R6.2(b)(ii). If you're going to bother to follow the Bluebook may as well go all the way.
