Memo to The Legal Satyriconistas: You’re lawyers. You got class.

  1. 1. Not all of the Satyriconistas are lawyers.
    2. The spectrum of styles, opinions, and views among the Satyriconistas is, by design, quite broad. As the editor of the LS, I do not select authors according to how much they will agree with me.
    3. The opinion expressed in each individual post is that of the author, unless the post is signed “by all hands.”

      Fair enough. And I now see from reviewing his biography at LS that Charles Platt is apparently not one of the Satyriconistas who’s a lawyer. I made the assumption that he was because of his prominent reference to the legal history establishing First Amendment rights for adult entertainment, which I know is also a focus of your legal firm. I also noted that the first comment to Platt’s post was from an associate of your firm and complimented Platt on the rainbow coming out his ass. And my post originally included a link to your indication in the balls-and-bread-knife comment thread that you would indeed exact Sicilian-style vengeance in a hypothetical situation involving a porn producer and family member. I edited the link out because it seemed impertinent. But my half-formed thought was, based on possibly untrue assumptions about the modern porn industry, that an individual would need an unduly large measure of underworld juice of his own to get away with such vengeance without intolerable risk to the rest of his extended family. Hell, maybe you’ve got such juice, in which case my half-formed thought would have been even more impertinent.

  2. Fair enough. No offense was taken. Just wanted to make sure you had the straight story.
