The dubbing would probably be terrible.

Now high school age kids need pictures to understand something?  That used to be true of only first graders.  Wouldn’t it be better to teach them to read?

Then it would be like Congress, which is regularly conducted by cartoons.

@2. I have actually had the pleasure of not only speaking to Mr. Burney, but also reading his blog. I suggest you read it before dismissing it out of hand. Better yet, why don’t you condense the relevant issues and concepts down to a high school level, while also remaining accurate and entertaining. Once you are able to do so, then I will listen to what you have to say on the issue.

Seriously though, for a crim law geek/comic book geek, this is like Christmas.

Thumbs up ...

How awesome is this?! I’m not a comic book fan, but this is a great opportunity to educate folks that would otherwise not be exposed to the information, in a way that speaks to them!

I can’t wait to see the one for Antitrust Litigation! Or, how about Evidence… or Corporations?!

Seriously, there are some witheringly dry subjects out there, and it would help to get the information delivered in such a way as to make it entertaining and interesting.

I am not jealous of his humility.
I am not jealous of his intelligence.
I am not jealous of his talent.
I am not jealous of his sense of humor.
I am not jealous of his career.

Not at all.
