From the readers

Email from a reader:

“You’ve caused quite a stir among some of us in the 1L class with your blog. You do a good job of chronicling life here at UCLA law…So, who exactly are you?”

[UCLA 1L]


Come on, now. You’re going to have to do a lot better than that if you are to find out who I am. (Contrary to some things you might read on this blog, I’m not that easy). I’m not adverse to having people find me out, as I see it happening eventually, but they’re going to have to do their share of detective work and/or stalking to find me. I give enough hints and by putting everything together piece by piece, I'm sure one can slowly figure me out.

To the 1L who sent me this email: I know who you are, and I know you know who I am. Beyond that, you’ll have to use your sleuthing skills to find out who I am. Wasn’t my previous hint enough? Just look for a white, average, heterosexual, middle class male who looks 68% like Tom Hanks and 59% like Justin Timberlake. Shouldn’t be too hard.

I’ll give you two more hints, personality-wise.
1. Like all bloggers, I’m at heart an introvert. I do play the whole socializing bit and the whole networking thing that law students are taught, but at the end of the day, I’m value my alone-time. Bloggers, by definition, feel more comfortable sharing their thoughts with the computer.
2. While some of my exploits are exciting and some of my opinions are perhaps controversial, I don’t think I’m that different from everyone else. Most law students I’m sure have just as crazy if not crazier exploits and opinions, but are too embarrassed/modest/PC to share them. I’m no different than most, except that I’m completely honest about everything.

OK, that’s all the freebies I am going to give. You will have to do your detective work to find out the rest.

That doesn't give me any additional hints. As you know, because of prop. 209, the 1L class is pretty homogeneous: white and middle class.

My intentions exactly. Since you brought it up, I'll try to do a post on 209 later in the week.
