The Conspiracy Teams Up With the Federation:

The OpinionJournal Federation of Web sites is up, and I'm pleased to say that we're part of it. (The current list of members is Council on Science and Health, City Journal, Claremont Institute, Commentary, Competitive Enterprise Institute, Dynamist, Eduwonk, First Things, InstaPundit, Larry J. Sabato's Crystal Ball, Overlawyered, Pacific Research Institute for Public Policy, RealClearPolitics, Reason Foundation, Property and Environment Research Center, The American Spectator, The Federalist Society, The Heritage Foundation, The New Criterion, and us.) Right now, the Federation page links to all the sites, plus a featured article from one of them; I'm not sure what more OpinionJournal plans for this, but I look forward to seeing.

Naturally, OpinionJournal exercises no editorial control over what we post here, though of course they're entitled to choose which, if any, of our posts they'll specially link to.

Resistance is futile.

The Wall Street Journal is just another tool of the liberal media ;)

The dark skies of OpinionJournal Federation fascism are descending upon America...

The news pages of the WSJ are a tool of the liberal media. It is the opinion pages that are not. The paper has schizophrenia.

The Internets: The Final Frontier.

These are the voyages of the OpinionJournal Federation blog Volokh Conspiracy. It's continuing mission: to explore strange new areas of law, to seek out new jurisprudence and new legal theories... TO BOLDLY GO WHERE NO LAWYER HAS GONE BEFORE...

Duuuuh... duh duh duh.... duh duh duuuuuh.... (SCHWOOOOOOSH)


Captain Eugene Volokh (multi-talented, diplomatic, but not to be trifled with)

First Officer Orin Kerr (loyal and by the book)

Ship's Surgeon Randy Barnett (not above heroic efforts to breathe life into the near dead...)

Science Officer/Mathematician Todd Zywicki (an android. 'Nuff said.)

Security Officer Dave Kopel (honor-bound, loves his weapons somethin' fierce)

and Kevin Choset (genius whiz kid)

... I'm going to stop now. Apologies.

I love the Claremont Institute Rewiew of Books magazine I get. Very informative. Interesting ideas.

Thief should seek help. Quickly. I just want to know who wears the red shirts on this motley crew.

I think Clayton Cramer was a designated red-shirt a few episodes ago.

My only regret is that Michelle Boardman no longer blogs here. Otherwise I would have had a perfect counselor Troi.

No red shirt for me yet... until I get into law school I'll have to content myself with being just just a lowly replicator repairman.

The all-powerful Supreme Court would be the all-powerful Q Continuum, naturally.
