Quick Hits: October 1, 2010

Here are a few non-legal thoughts for the end of the week:

  • The entire national narrative during this election season is about the epic clash of the parties heading into November, and yet not ONE political sign in my area lists the candidate's political party affiliation.  The color choices don't help either.  Why the disconnect? And is this the new normal?
  • Big Ten play starts this weekend for the 4-0 Michigan Wolverines football team.  Denard Robinson, the nation's leading rusher (even though he is a quarterback and missed more than three quarters of the game this past weekend) is ready to play despite bruising his knee last week.  Have you ever seen a more electrifying player?  He is as good as the defense is bad.  At least we get to play Indiana, Purdue, and Illinois (sorry, B0b) still this year.
  • It's October 1st and the high temperature for the day here in Massachusetts is in the upper 70s.  Fall just does not work if it is hot.  Looking forward to cooler days ahead.
  • Massachusetts implemented a texting-while-driving ban this week.  With so many smartphones out there now, how in the world will this be enforced - were you texting or typing in your passcode to make a phone call?

So what is on your mind this week?
