What happens when you graduate at the bottom of your law school class

The Corner: "Thus Far, the Constitution Has Held Up Against President Biden’s Executive Despotism."
Since August, President Joe Biden, that ertswhile restorer of our norms, has: (1) issued an executive order that he knew full well was illegal; (2) altered that illegal executive order in an attempt to avoid judicial review; and (3) asked the courts to allow him to proceed with his illegal executive order, so that, by the time it is inevitably struck down, the case has been rendered moot.
"YOLO, let's see what unconstitutional overreach I can do before someone stops me" isn't much of a governing style.

Best and brightest, y'all

Stop. Do not pass Go.

Do not spend $200 billion.

Reason: "With Congressional Gridlock, Americans Get a National Breather." - "That's good news for Americans baffled by Democrats' insistence on treating the U.S. economy as something between a laboratory experiment and a toy train set, with lawmakers indulging their whims through serial rounds of life-altering policy moves."

Here come the pre-nups

I found this to be an interesting statistic from "‘Financial infidelity’ has money-conscious Gen Zers and Millennials saying ‘I don’t’."
The Knot’s Financial Study 2022 found that 43% of those surveyed were most likely to consider it a deal breaker if their partner was secretive about finances or dishonest about money being spent.

Research has also found that more couples are signing prenups regardless of their financial status — they’re not just for Gisele and Tom Brady. A new report from the Harris Poll found that 15% of U.S. adults surveyed signed a prenup, which is up from just 3% in 2010. It also found that 35% of unmarried people say they’re likely to sign a prenup in the future.
Also:
This aligns with other data. A new survey from buy-now, pay-later company Affirm found that millennials see the ability to manage money as the most attractive trait in a partner.
That's not a bad thing.
