Back in the Mine

I've been away for ten days. Four of them were absolutely screenless. No computer, no television, no tubes of any kind. I suffered no noticeable Blakely withdrawal symptoms.

I did think about my working hypothesis about the law in Indiana. The idea occurred to me about a year ago after yet another defeat in a case I could not lose. The hypothesis goes something like this:
Indiana, as a matter of policy, is very good about making sure that everyone has a lawyer. The courts, trial and appellate alike, then make the lawyers largely irrelevant by making the law largely irrelevant.
Just a working hypothesis.

Great to be back in the mine.
