This is a finals week roundup, since I'm too busy to write a more substantive post.
- In an amusing error, a CBS news alert email references "Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi." If only, if only.
- The acquittal of an ex-prosecutor for what would have been his fourth DUI conviction emphasizes the necessity of integrity among the police. The jury apparently decided they couldn't trust the cops, who in the past had abused their power to fix tickets for family members and friends.
- Frank Pasquale has a review of the book Nothing to Hide, which presents a compelling case for increased privacy protections in the modern world. Definitely worth a read.
- Jonathan Adler has an amusing story about a couple who foreclosed on their bank, showing up at the branch with the sheriff to confiscate desks, computers, and all of the cash in the drawers after the bank refused to pay attorney fees from a wrongful-foreclosure suit. (The bank didn't own the couple's house, but tried to foreclose on it anyways.)
- Eugene Volokh writes about how Rand Paul just ensured that no one will confuse the Paul family for libertarians ever again. (The relative audio is here.)
- Dominic Nardi, a PhD student in political science at the University of Michigan (Ann Arbor, represent!) has a very good post about the development of constitutionalism in Myanmar.
