I’m pleased to announce that Timothy Sandefur has returned to the blogging world after a few weeks away. Having moved in to a new home with his lovely fiance Erin, he is now free to ignore her and turn his attention to the far more important task of writing entertaining and enlightening posts for all of us. And he begins, naturally, by busting my chops for pointing out the wrong basis for decrying the fanaticism of those who are “pro-life”, yet threaten to kill others (like Judge Greer, Michael Schiavo or abortion doctors). Point taken. He also has this amusing post about the “rational basis” standard of review, which, as he points out, generally means that whatever excuse may be offered up is neither rational nor a basis. Welcome back, Timothy. Your voice has been missed greatly in the cacaphony of conversations around the blogosphere.
