Eugene Volokh (www):
I'm constitutionally unqualified for the office, in two senses of the word "constitutionally."

guy in the veal calf office (mail) (www):
1. Who are your intellectual heroes? > Ronald Coase, James Madison, Richard Epstein, Frank Meyer.

James Madison was my write-in vote for president in November 2008. Even if the White House was burned under his watch, and even if he is, technically speaking, not alive and able to hector congress- he was a far, far better candidate than those listed on my ballot. Since he agrees with me, Professor Adler must be pretty smart.

2. I'm hesitant to disqualify anyone from the "reasonable and worth listening to" category because of a single error, but Professor Adler's burning desire to live in Philadelphia comes close.

Mr. Bingley (www):
I'm sure Professor Adler just wants to be closer to Geno's.

I would like JHA to blog about the whys and hows of how he came to change his mind about the stuff he changed his mind about.

"I'm constitutionally unqualified for the office, in two senses of the word "constitutionally."" What else do you have in common with President Obama?

Comment Policy: We reserve the right to edit or delete comments, and in extreme cases to ban commenters, at our discretion. Comments must be relevant and civil (and, especially, free of name-calling). We think of comment threads like dinner parties at our homes. If you make the party unpleasant for us or for others, we'd rather you went elsewhere. We're happy to see a wide range of viewpoints, but we want all of them to be expressed as politely as possible.

We realize that such a comment policy can never be evenly enforced, because we can't possibly monitor every comment equally well. Hundreds of comments are posted every day here, and we don't read them all. Those we read, we read with different degrees of attention, and in different moods. We try to be fair, but we make no promises.

And remember, it's a big Internet. If you think we were mistaken in removing your post (or, in extreme cases, in removing you) -- or if you prefer a more free-for-all approach -- there are surely plenty of ways you can still get your views out.
