    All his kids' names start with R, too.  Though he's only 3 of 'em IIRC - possibly four?  In his case, he argues that it means that the registered cattle brand can be handed down without confusion.

    •  I knew Rick in law school. My (4+ / 0-)

      anti-choice Constitutional professor picked Rick to do the explication of Roe v. Wade.  Predictable.  I can't say I in any way disliked Rick, but the brightest bulb he was not.  Mostly I thought he was a gladhander kinda guy or was sorta like Bush -- a frat boy/cheerleader with a lot of money.  He told me he knew Pat Tillman and seemed genuinely distressed about the whole thing.  I'll give him that.

        Yea, he did seem to be in that Bush mold. Didn't seem to be an expert about any issue yet even I could tell as a casual observer in 2002 that the guy had money and great connections.

        Didn't know that he knew Tillman. I saw him in person when I was a teenager probably 10 or so years back but I was too chicken to say hi. What a mountain of a Human Being, yet gentle as can be.
