What's next, an antitrust investigation of law clerk hiring?

Now that Mindy has been "separated" from her federal clerkship, perhaps she is less likely to be interviewed by the feds, as some law clerks on the Supreme Court of Mississippi recently had the pleasure of experiencing.

I shudder to think about how the permanent denizens of the court that formerly employed Mindy would react to a bunch of G-men interviewing their law clerks about how the court's decisions were made.

Separated from Service

For those of you who don't know, when you leave employment with the federal government you have "separated from service." You don't quit. Your term does not end. You are violently wrenched from the arms of your job and thrown into the pit with the rest of the private masses. That's what it sounds like to me anyway. Separated from service. I've been exiled. Cast out of the garden!

But, anyway, here's the official announcement: I am no longer a federal law clerk. Merciful heavens, thank you Jesus. Now I can blog uncontrollably without fear of reprisals. Blog, blog, blog. I can speak meaningfully about things that matter. I can share my views about anything I care to speak about!!!

So, um.



Maybe I'd better start slow. Here's a link to a San Antonio paper. Note to scorned women of Texas: take the bus to surprise your two-timing husbands, please. You'll save yourself a lot of time in jail.
