As I gear up for this next year at the J. Reuben Clark School of Law, I've decided to start a new series of blog posts: The Provo Watch. My goal is to make at least one observation per day about life, love, liberty, etc. in what is probably the world's oddest city. I'll try and keep them updated regularly for two reasons: (1) this is for posterity (I want them to know, R-E-A-L-L-Y know, the sacrifices Grandpa Eric made for them in his college years); and (2) boredom. On the upside, my schedule should be much less intense than it was last year, providing me some breathing room in life.
This is promising to be a very fascinating prompt, and one that should provide hours of hilarity, inanity, and general tom-foolery. I might mix in one or two serious notes, but let's be honest with ourselves-- anyone who takes Provo seriously is either a shade left of zealotry or a 19-year-old from Utah County who has drunk too much of the local sugar-free Kool-Aid. I wonder what flavor that Kool-Aid is. Any thoughts?
