United States, a mere 36 days after the case was argued. The unanimous opinion in Shular is a ...

Postcard from Florida

  Rose and I left our garden behind last week to go shelling and birding on Sanibel, Captiva and Cayo Costa. We follow a routine, repeated for a week or two every February. We patrol beaches for shells and the J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge for birds. We learn the names of an abundant variety of shells and birds and feel confident that our mental acuity may not be as bad as we thought. We feel good about ourselves for a little while. It is only a mirage. By the spring equinox, the...

A Bad Night for Democrats

The CBS-moderated debate on Tuesday was bad.The topic choices were bad: We heard yet another litigation of barely different visions of never-gonna-pass health-care policy an hour before we heard a question about coronavirus and pandemics. The moderation was bad: Bernie was attacked by five candidates consecutively and got about 45 seconds to respond. Meanwhile, Warren was allowed long soliloquies just because Michael Bloomberg passingly referred to her. The crosstalk was bad. Oh, and as a viewer...

Innovate or Die: Disney’s Iger writes his last act as idea man

Bob Iger, in a flash, went from CEO to idea guy. On Tuesday he suddenly called it a career as CEO of Walt Disney Co. The only drama was his timing: There are apparently no health issues, personal scandals, company financial problems or unhappy shareholders to blame. He stepped down from perhaps the most wanted job in Corporate America on his own terms. It’s a stunning move that virtually nobody saw coming. Sure, he was working on his last contract with the company through 2021. And at age 69, wh...
