Incredibly witty and thought-provoking article, even if at first it just appears to be a bit of humor at the expense of some of the nation’s most powerful and influential judicial members (although, as someone with several lawyers as close personal friends, I know they find this kind of stuff great and aren’t offended at all). I was very amused by the fact that someone would compare Chris Wray to Nick Lachey, but I can see the resemblance. What I really like about your article (besides your great writing style and humor) is that you point out the people behind the scenes or who are lesser known. I bet Mrs. O’Scannlain, for example, loves getting a little bit of attention now and then instead of always being the wife of a judge. I really enjoyed the story about Judge Holmes, too! Keep it up!

Wow, although I don’t follow the Federalist Society as well as I should, I always find it very interesting about what goes on at conventions like this. I’ve been to a few other professional society conventions, and I remember being very surprised at some of the things that went on at them. While it looks very dignified, very academic, and very professional to the outside world, these conventions (at least the ones I’ve been to) always seem more like an excuse for old friends to get together than for anything really serious. I love your commentary on the convention, especially since you get straight to what we all want to know: which of these judges is incredibly hot under those robes?! Hah! Plus it’s always great to hear that we have judges with a sense of humor and the ability to cut loose and have a little fun! Thanks for your commentary!
