No comic book covers today for this edition of Friday Links, dear readers. It’s an Abnormal Use tradition to see Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band whenever they come to the region, and so it was this past Monday evening when we found ourselves at Springsteen’s concert at the Greensboro Coliseum in Greensboro, North Carolina. Present for the show were editor Jim Dedman and author Phil Reeves (along with non-blogger GWB attorney Art Howson). You can find the great set list here (and note that he played “Because the Night!”). We don’t blog enough about Springsteen. Not too long ago, we paused to reflect upon the passing of Springsteen’s saxophonist, Clarence Clemons, who passed away last summer at 69. In that post, we included a photograph taken at Springsteen’s 2009 Greenville, South Carolina show at the Bilo Center, at which we captured a photograph of E Street Band member Steven Van Zandt holding a handmade sign made by Reeves. What a day that was. (Oh, and if you haven’t heard it already, here is a link to Bruce Springsteen’s keynote address at the recent South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas.).
Whoa! We just learned that we were named the “Blog of the Month” for January 2012 by the Penn State Dickinson School of Law Alumni Connection! Thank you!
The wonderful TweetsofOld Twitter account reports on an 1884 Louisiana on the job injury. We wonder if it was litigated.
This week, Philip K. Howard at The Atlantic asked “Should the Courts Be Allowed to Repeal Obsolete Law?” An interesting read, that..
This week, Abnormal Use broke through into a new medium, taking the public airwaves by storm. Our own writer Nick Farr was a guest on KUCI-FM‘s “The Docket” to discuss the legacy of My Cousin Vinny. Nick enjoyed some great conversation with host Evan Simon about the film and its practical application in our legal careers. In case you missed it, we understand that a podcast of that interview may be forthcoming. Keep checking for updates!
