Docket #16-004: Lessons in Punting


I was really uncomfortable while recording this because I was sweating my balls off, so really I didn’t care what I said. Please don’t take any of this as legal advice.


Seal of the Supreme Court of the United States

These guys are the masters of dodging the question.

Coming up in this episode:

•     The Supreme Court gives up and goes home, apparently in order to avoid being used as a politically-divisive issue, because all the justices have Rip van Winkled their way from 1955 to 2015 and don’t realize they’ve been a political hot potato—or the opposite of a hot potato? What’s something that everyone want to hold onto for as long as possible but are eventually forced to throw away? Is there a word for that? Whatever it is, the Supreme Court has been that for fucking ever and they should get used to it; and
•     A group of Patriots fans throw a Hail Mary pass that winds up waaay out of bounds.

I’m Geoffrey Blackwell, it’s roughly 90 degrees in my studio, and you’re listening to Docket 16-004 of All Too Common Law.
