Judges, public interest lawyers, and law librarians have a special interest in this European equivalent to a First Amendment battle. We stand up every day for people who want their voices to be heard and their human rights respected.

This growing cartoon collection is one of the most moving images so far from January 7th:

Our beloved Unshelved team has come up with a T-shirt for the rockets scientists, and the clueless, in our lives: “Without Rockets, it’s Just Science.

Link back to the comic strip that spawned a T-shirt.

Very high cool factor!

Open Law Lab is a wonderful website, curious, provocative, funny, wise, and more. It stands on its own (enjoy!) but it is also an excellent companion to Richard Zorza’s Access to Justice Blog.

One of my (several) favorite Open Law Lab “images of law” is the blog post titled: Law for Normal People. It includes a graphic with this text that pretty much sums up everything that makes legal self-help center and public law library program management so confounding:

“People don’t want to talk to lawyers, but they really want legal advice. (See its original posting at the Stanford d. school blog, Whiteboard.) And read more about the lawyer / artist: Margaret Hagan.

Is a cartoon library worth $10 million? You bet it is, if consider the history and the joy it contains.

The Cartoon Library at Ohio State University is a one place to start your cartoon preservation and collection research. Heaven knows archivists know about preservation of printed, and other, materials – and while heaven might look fondly upon archivists, it tests them mightily to see if they are worthy of persisting on such a quixotic journey. Talk about a dream job – a Cartoon Archivist.  As Mark Twain apocryphally advised writers: make ’em laugh and make ’em cry. That’s good cartooning (and librarianship) in a nutshell.

And possibly just worth the long journey to Columbus, Ohio:  Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes) and Richard Thompson (Cul de Sac) will appear on the same stage in the Spring 2014 at Ohio State. Wowsers!

Deadline is March 15, 2013!

The First Amendment Cartoon Contest homepage has entry rules, tips and tricks for creating comics, and links to previous contest submissions and winners.

Since the earliest days of the American republic, cartoonists have entertained us, drawn attention to the issues of the day, and provoked discussion. In short, cartoons contribute to our civic life.

I have survived jury duty and live to blog another day. I will post about jury duty in a couple of days (after I survive my TV appearance!). In the meantime, on to Peanuts and the Law which I read about during my jury service (waiting, waiting, and more waiting – can’t they speed it up a bit? But more on that later.)

In the February 2007 (free but registration required) LTN (Law Technology News), Robert Ambrogi of the excellent Law Sites (aka Legal Line) blog tells more of the story of his experience with his son’s peanut allergy (his previous posting on the subject is here), in an article entitled, “Just One Bite.” Peanut allergies are serious indeed, as anyone who knows anyone with one would agree.

The one-page LTN story is chock-full of sources of information on peanut allergies, some you probably know about and others less well known, including the U.S. FDA Center for Food Safety & Applied Nutrition, AllergicChild, Food Allergy Project, and many more.
