Silence is assent, part 2

Picking up the action live on page 2...

The New York Times permits:

I have known Goldsmith since we were at law school together.
Seriously, this is how they pick book reviewers. Guarantees a hard-hitting, objective review, that's for sure.

Goldsmith, by the way, is a famous Memphis name. A real journalist would have mentioned his father as well as his Arkansas beauty queen mother.

Page 2 has the real reason for Goldsmith's book: The OLC is a jumping off point for the Supreme Court, and Goldsmith knows he has to mend fences. This guy has been a visiting AEI "scholar", and his record shows him to be a doctrinaire conservative. So, the answer is NO, even if he does teach at Harvard.
