Reading over the Break

Part of my winter break re-socialization process is to catch up on some blessedly non-legal related reading.

    Blind Side, Michael Lewis – Lewis takes a relatively obscure position in football, left tackle, and traces it’s evolution from just another lineman to one of the most highly paid if still almost invisible skill positions on the field. At the same time he follows the path of Michael Oher, a runaway in one of Memphis’ worst neighborhoods whose physical prowess takes him to a private Christian prep school and on to fame as starting left tackle as Ole Miss. It’s fantastic. I think I’m going to have to try to fit Moneyball in as well, especially since it’s the inspiration for MoneyLaw.

    Judge Sewall’s Apology, Richard Francis – Francis explores the Salem Witch Trials through the lens of Samuel Sewall, one of the presiding judges of the witch trials who would later walk into Boston’s South Church, recant the guilty verdicts and pray for forgiveness. Francis explores the episode as a catalyst in a shift in thought an ideology in early America and our understanding of good and evil. Excellent. OK, it’s sort of legal related. He was a judge. Note to self – there are some evidentiary issues with invisible spectral phenomena.
