And So It Begins

Scene from last nights law review orientation dinner.

Book Review Editor

Editor: You're David Schraub right? You did some work for me earlier this summer!

Me: That's right -- for Strauss' online piece. But now I'm cite checking the book review from hell.

Editor: Haha ... book reviews aren't that bad. Trust me, it gets a lot worse.

Me: Really?

Editor: Yeah. Book reviews are generally pretty short compared to articles, and...

Me: [interrupting] Mine's 66 pages and 450 footnotes.

Editor: [pause] What the hell kind of book review is that?

Book Review Editor: This was not my decision!
