In the WSJ

Thanks to Karen for pointing me to my own quote in today's Wall Street Journal Online. I'm not that modest after all.

As is often the case, I spent a long time on the phone with the writer, going through a fairly arcane area of the law, and the quote is one of these "the law professor says 'it's an open' question" placeholders. That's not the fault of the writer, who was being thorough and who got the gist of the story right. It's just a curious feature of formulaic daily journalism.

The substantive moral of the story: If you blog, you may be responsible for the Comments that your readers leave.
