Robert Bork Fights the Power

Highly principled conservative judge Robert Bork, who slipped and fell, injuring his leg and his head (no word on damage to his beard), while attempting to give a speech at the Yale Club last June, has now sued that august institution for $1 million plus punitive damages. With any luck, never again will elderly jurists be susceptible to falling down at the Yale Club.

A couple of years ago, I attended a most delightful wedding at the very same Yale Club; tragically, I was overserved alcoholic beverages, and spent much of the next day exhausted and with a terrible headache. Were I a principled conservative, this would have been cause for a lucrative lawsuit, but alas, I am not.
