Here is my challenge to 2L Law Review Students across the nation:

Be creative with the titles of your student comments this year. Let's put the "Revue" in "Review." Let's prove that we're not all overachievers, puckered so tight and wound so far we could explode at any moment.

Little honesty: other non-Law Review law students don't want to be around us not because they are jealous or threatened by what you consider your "superior intellect" . . . but because they are afraid they will be too close when we finally go off.

Take a cue from BuffaloWings&Vodka. As for balancing serious work with a laugh-out-loud-in-Oil&Gas-when-I-should-be-taking-notes humour, the man is a hero.

Together, we can all do our part

and make a difference

while only you can prevent forest fires

friends don't let friends drive drunk.

I totally agree, if more Law Review students were like you we wouldn't be so mean to you guys...Then again, at my school they get offices-so I might still mock them a bit out of jealousy.
