Some link love from the Wisconsin Law Journal.

Last week's link was to Marquette law professor Greg O'Meara's fascinating (and occasionally grisly) Jeffrey Dahmer paper, wherein Wisconsin's "not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect" defense* is subjected to French deconstructionist philosophy.

(This week must have been a slow one, comparatively speaking.)

* That defense was unsuccessful for Jeffrey Dahmer. But it was proven later, when he embraced Young Earth Creationism in prison.

Congrats on the linkage!

No Alum Blogger of the Month yet, alas.

It's pretty awesome Marquette HAS an alum blogger of the month. Our law school was not so fond of the blogs.

It's not surprising that Jeffrey Dahmer embraced Young Earth Creationism. He may have always held these beliefs as his father, Lionel, was a minor player in the "creation science" world.

So is Lionel an engineer or a dentist?

Score another one for the Salem Hypothesis, because Lionel Dahmer has (had?) a degree in electrical engineering.
