I'm pleased to report that we were listed as the top vote-getter in the Ivory Tower category on ABA's Blawg 100. Query what that means, but we'll take it.
Do you honestly not know what it means, or is this just some sort of met-ivory tower humor (you're in such an ivory tower that you don't know what ivory tower means)?
...but there is something unnerving about having the impact of decisions on the lives of actual people be more or less disallowed by the prevailing interpretive lens here, expecting the cumbersome legislative process to restore justice to the situation ex post facto when the text is too rigid. Liberals have their own ivory tower problems, but at least some of them are looking out the window, not just down at the text in front of them.
