You can find me in the forest or on the beach in the harshest of conditions or in low-light. However, I’m a real sucker for mountains; mainly because we don’t have those here in the Netherlands, but there’s something in the interplay between the land…

Gorsuch hearings: A referendum on Originalism and corporate power – The Hill (blog)

Thursday, March 23, 2017
