May 1 is Law Day here in the U.S. To celebrate, read these thoughtful and sobering words from a marvelous writer, E.L. Doctorow, in The New York Times.

  1. I saw your tweet on this yesterday evening. I agree that our status as an exceptional nation is not guaranteed — we can mess it up. I don’t know that we’re as far gone as Doctorow suggests — as I argue in this post on my blog: http://leyhane.blogspot.com/2012/04/on-exceptional-importance-of-law-day.html

    • Great post, Jack! You’re right–we have our problems, but we remain an exceptional country, and I hope you’re right in your assessment of Doctorow’s position.
