really, I'll get back to blogging in earnest soon, I promise. Now I'm getting ready for tomorrow's trip to lovely Montgomery AL. But I do have time to note that this morning the Supreme Court issued a good decision in the important trademark-with-copyright-overtones case Dastar (previously discussed here, and opinion now available in pdf here) -- and an awful opinion (pdf here) in Beneficial Nat. Bank v. Anderson, about the important but unsexy topic of "complete preemption" removability, previously discussed here. (Awful in what sense? In its result, in its departure from longstanding precedent, and in its lack of any compelling reasoning).
