Lost in Metaphors

Students at Baylor Law got an email just before the break explaining the school's reasoning in removing a couple of oak trees.  Yet, a casual perusal of the Baylor Law School Faculty Index page indicates that an oak of my class's legal education is mysteriously missing.  I have yet to receive an email.

I'm usually not a boat-rocker, a rumor-monger, or someone who goes searching for gossip, but does anybody know what happened?  She scared and intimidated me, but I also learned a lot in her class about legal thinking and writing.  It's a shame for her to disappear in the middle of the night.

I know nothing (but am super curious, of course) - but I just have to get everybody back for that awful "Hunter" thing the other day: they were Pecan trees ;)

Also - I'm ACCing your first article - I didn't know until I saw those "Spykes" and I laughed a lot.

So it was. But you know, calling someone a "pecan" of our legal education just doesn't evoke the same images as calling them an oak. I made a mistake in the name of art.

By the way, I hope you enjoy the Spykes article. It was . . . fascinating.
