Saturday Link Session

Saturday morning and here’s a few bits of suggested reading for interested parties who follow this blog.

First, Ken White of Popehat asks whether the right is mocking liberal victim culture or adopting it as one of their own tactics. http://www.popehat.com/2014/11/06/is-the-right-mocking-victim-culture-or-adopting-it/

Next, Scott Greenfield of Simple Justice gives us a nice post on argumentation, specifically the minefield of false analogies and why they’re a dishonest tactic when used by academics. http://blog.simplejustice.us/2014/11/14/revenge-of-the-analogies/

Marc Randazza of the Legal Satyricon talks “confidential legal communications” and what to do when you receive a letter with those words on it. A bit of language, but still hilarious. http://randazza.wordpress.com/2014/11/04/i-declare-confidentiality/

Gideon from A Public Defender comes to bat with a brief mediation on how our treatment of criminals is justified…until the criminal is someone we know. http://apublicdefender.com/2014/10/24/one-size-fits-all/

Finally, Rick Horowitz talks plea bargains. http://www.rhdefense.com/2014/09/07/lets-make-a-deal-the-joy-of-the-old-in-and-out

Have a great weekend, everyone.
