Ron and Harvard

He started classes yesterday. Give him a week and he'll be back in touch, but there's a lot to do this first week. So, for now, it's me reporting.

He's having a blast, enjoying his peers, being taught by the former Solicitor General, people who clerked for various Supreme Court justices and some of the people on the winning side of the tobacco settlement.

I think his favorite moment so far was in his Criminal Law class the teacher explained that Harvard sometimes gets critiqued for taking a more theoretical approach (as opposed to teaching a lot of specifics about say, Massachusetts State law). The lady said, "You see, we want to make sure you spend time wrestling with what comprises good law, because you will be the ones making it in a few years."

Right then, he felt really, really cool.
