Hey folks,

Our Friday end-of-day analysis post had accumulated in excess of 200 comments, and, perhaps coincidentally, we also began hearing increasing complaints of slow loading.  Whether the cause is the large number of comments or some other aspect of the page, Professor Jacobson and I thought it would be worthwhile to put up a separate post compiling the posts of the last week, and providing a “fresh” comments section for all of you.  So, this is it.

First, however, we have a poll for you pleasure and amusement (non-scientific, of course, and closes at midnight Sunday):

It’s been a crazy busy week, of course, and we’ve done our best to cover it in detail here at Legal Insurrection.  For your convenience, below are links to each end-of-day analysis post, as well as other substantive posts, made over the course of the week:
