Red State, Blue Students:

Paul Caron has an interesting post on a poll he did of incoming U. Cincinnati students using the eInstruction handhelds. Paul is a consistently interesting scholar and innovative teacher. (And, in the link to my guest-blogging, organized the rankings conference that produced the paper that got me here. So, not too far off topic.)

Interesting result. My 1st reaction is that sufficient affluent Republican students went to more prestigious schools, which I would think would be a common effect at public law schools. ---Ah, *now* I see why y'all want the public law schools privatized! ;)

No such effect noticed at Ole Miss, but then, it's the old-boy-network school for the state, and the state's only public law school.

We all know that lawyers are the smartest folks around. The survey shows that even in the reddest corner of a red state that Democrats outnumber Republicans amongst quality lawyers-to-be. So the data demonstrate, yet again, that Democrats are smarter than Republicans 8).

a dumb lawyer (mail):
Aw, c'mon Tylerh - we all know that lawyers are mostly dumb. I'm one, and I'm not that bright. But I know enough to know that my personal experience surely represents universal reality. :-)

Homemakers are the smart ones. My wife knows, because she's one, and she's smart, and she tells me. She also told John Roberts.
