Now instead of the incredibly ineffective current Ninth Circuit (which is widely known in legal circles as the most reversed Federal Court of Appeals), there will exist three smaller circuits spread amonst the population and geography formerly served by one overburdened federal circuit. This revamps the "new Ninth Circuit, to include California, Guam, Hawaii, and the Northern Marianas Islands; a new Twelfth Circuit, to include Arizona, Nevada, Idaho, and Montana; and a new Thirteenth Circuit, to include Alaska, Oregon, and Washington."Read that again. Then go read the analysis linked above, there is an excellent review of the effects of such a reorganization. I just want to highlight a few of the points here.
"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.

"Death to the Republic of Dork! All hail the Geek Empire!"
"It's kind of like Lileks on electro-shock treatments that aren't quite working."-steve the llama butcher

(bonus points for anyone that can guess the literary referance in which "unconqured" and "I" figure prominently)
