    Good plan because if I don't understand it after the lecture tomorrow, I may say the heck with it. Maybe if I have a cocktail before trying to understand it.... holy moly this thing is insane. Greedy landowners in the 17th c.

    Al Gore had not invented the Internet yet when I was a law student, but Wikipedia has a good article on the Rule Against Perpetuities. When I was in school we had to Shepardize with about a dozen books and pamphlets.

    Love to help (feel free to PM me on law school stuff) but this is not part of most real practices.

    Thanks! I may take you up on that... especially thrilled at the moment since everything I've read so far has been repealed (just read that tidbit)... most excellent.

    Unless the state is a wait-and-see state, or changed 21 to 90 years, or dropped it altogether.

    I like where our professor gave us quick note about a case where the CA Supreme Court said, yeah, the rule is stupid. Apparently that's the most recent case about the rule in CA. It was in the 60s. 'Nuff said.

    The only 21 rule I am familiar with has to do with the cleaning of a golf ball in play. As far as I know it is applicable all over the world where golf is played. So what are we talking about here? Oh, yeah, I forgot. There is that rule that sets 21 as the age at which consumption of alcoholic beverages becomes legal. Lots of people violate that rule. Then there is Rule 21 for our local homeowners association that establishes the types of legal trash cans we may use. Lots of people violate that rule, too.

    Maybe Rule 21 should be "The LTE should never drop to Page 2"...

    And Pittsburgh fans will always associate 21 with Roberto Clemente...
    "Quality is not an option!"

    I'm used to Robert Brickey as 21 setting the rules. At least vertically.

    Where'd all the Kleenex go?

    And a good association it is! A man who left us before his time.

    Does anyone here watch "Nashville"? I'm getting sucked in. It helps that I liked Friday Night Lights, Hero, Who's Line is it Anyways, Glee, and Dallas, as this show involves actors or plot machinations from all of them.

    Plus, as a former Nashvillian, I like the segues of cityscapes.

    Happy "I live in a new building and have no idea how many kids will trick or treat, so now it's 5pm and I'm sitting here with 2 unopened bags of candy" Day!

    I had to finally admit that I wasn't ever going to have trick-or-treaters, besides my nephew, come to my door. I've been here since 12/89 and he is the only one to knock on my door. I quit buying candy because I was only fooling myself that it was for trick-or-treaters.

    Unhappy Pneumonia Sucks

    Well I had a cold for couple of days and about a week ago I started to get a really bad cough which I ignored for the most part treating it with Robitussin.

    Friend took me to the ER when I started to cough up blood and one chest x-ray later I was diagnosed with pneumonia so now I'm stuck doing nothing but scanning my computer for hours on end and eating my weight in antibiotics with cough syrup to drink it down.

    So yeah Pneumonia sucks, on the plus side I've lost some weight from this ordeal .
