Amazing that Kos, who is both a veteran of the first Gulf War and a lawyer, looks younger than Matt Yglesias from that angle.

What a great lineup. Some of these folks did a lot to keep the vision of a Bush-less America alive during the dark days of 2002.

Has anyone confirmed 'Kos's' attendance at law school? Given that the California State Bar does not list him as a member on their website - and membership is required to practice - did he graduate from somewhere and choose not to practice, or is he merely "screwing them"?

Lysander: Kos is a former undergrad student of mine from the early '90s. He was a journalism major then. A good writer and editor of a decent campus newspaper. He indeed did graduate from law school, but my word is he decided not to practice. He did not go in California. It was on the East Coast somewhere, as I remember. I liked him then a lot, but he's gotten pretty bitchy over the past several months. Too bad. I hope he'll return to the guy I knew.

IIRC, Kos' bio at his site says he graduated from Boston University School of Law.

My memory was right:

I subsequently received two bachelor degrees from Northern Illinois University (with majors in Philosophy, Political Science and Journalism) and my J.D. from Boston University School of Law (emphasis in trial litigation). I moved to San Francisco to work in the tech industry, where I remain today.

The Word is 'Blogstreaming': I'm drowning in blogs. Each of them are useful for updating a specific website or allowing me to sound off on a specific topic, but I need a one-size-fits-all solution.
