Sorry for the late blogging start. I was up in Pasadena arguing a Ninth Circuit case myself earlier today, and just returned to San Diego. So, as they say, "I gotta lot of catching up to do."
Meanwhile, in stark contrast to the glorious view of the ocean that currently confronts my senses as I sit here typing away, I thought I'd offer the following alternative. Read the first several pages of the opinion -- and the remainder, if you'd like -- and imagine what it would be like to live in a place like that.
Ewwww. Definitely not fun. It sounds like the housing equivalent to the traffic between LA and San Diego. Nothing you want to live in.
