"There was one district judge who died recently who was 104 years old," Posner said. "It's very unlikely he was firing on all eight cylinders at that age." : )

Dear Judge Posner, Thank you for your dissent in Senne (DPPA case involving "disclosure" of PII on a traffic ticket). I work in this area of law, and the case caught my attention, more so when I saw from which court it originated. Being a student of your writings, I am familiar with some of your thoughts on privacy. But I would have been surprised and concerned had you sided with the majority. On a related note, state courts are increasingly removing personal information from their criminal records, records that are historically deemed public and essential to a free and open society. I suspect the removal of this information will soon be challenged in courts across the US. Sincerely, Scott Slick

Dear Judge Posner, I've been reading some of your selections from OWH, Jr. Interestingly, I came across this quote from OWH: "I doubt if a shudder would go through the spheres if the whole ant heap were kerosened." Then I transitioned to your Catastrophe and Risk. What a perfect complement. It's been a few years since I've really dug into the genre, but Mr. Dworkin's passing has me motivated to dust off the relevant volumes and have it them. On a digression to an aside, I remember the first time I read one of your books. The book was the Economics of Justice. At the time, I was a Dworkin devotee. I couldn't wait to settle down and read "the enemy." The problem was the more I read the more I became convinced of your genius. Once I got to your history of jurisprudence in Problems of Jurisprudence you had leveled the playing field. I still think Dworkin was a profound thinker, and will always have his place in jurisprudence. At the same time, I find myself agreeing with the insights offered by you and Justice Holmes. Maybe it just comes down to "is" and "ought." I'm not sure. But I do enjoy the 15 plus books of your's I've read.
