But law was actually a topic of discussion, too! The Supreme Court was in the news, as usual, with Boumediene being put into effect. On Thursday, the Court also released five other opinions, four of which dealt with workers' rights decisions. There are ten decisions left for the Court in this term — including the hotly anticipated Second Amendment case DC v. Heller.

Meanwhile, Bear Sterns, the ill-fated investment firm, saw some of its former managers arrested. This, in turn, enabled the arresting officers to take each arrestee on the infamous "perp walk," which brought a discussion of the propriety of said walk. The Kozinski porn case, meanwhile, died down a bit — for the moment.

In other blog-related news, the Associated Press came in for some derision with their stunning decision to try to charge $2.50 a word for quoting their stories.
