Dan Harris has come to accept that despite his varied and considerable talents his previous efforts to bring about world peace via Blawg Review hosting have come to naught. Undaunted, he returns today with Blawg Review #210, which he promises will be sarcastic, mean-spirited, petty, and low-brow but not snarky.
The theme for this week is the May Fourth Movement which arose after the First World War, when the European victors gave defeated Germany's Chinese holdings to Japan rather than China. Harris is uniquely-qualified to host a Sino-Japanese-themed carnival of legal blogging. As readers of Harris' acclaimed China Law Blog know, his head is in China, focused on that nation's legal, business, and other challenges and opportunities. As followers of @DanHarris on Twitter know, his stomach is in Japan, where sushi and sashimi have their origins and have found their highest expression. As a result, his heart is bobbing up and down in the East China Sea, somewhere north of Taiwan.
Highlights of this week's review include a proposal to imprison and waterboard bow-tie wearers, a recognition of the legal significance of a dipsy-doodle, and a recommendation that our fellow blogger Eric Turkewitz become Justice Turkewitz.
David Harlow will host Blawg Review #211 next week at his HealthBlawg. In addition to gathering the best legal blogging published this week, he will update us on the progress in the Turkewitz confirmation hearings.
