    Is he at least a conservative? I know nothing about him, but the law school can only benefit from an infusion of conservative ideas. Now how about getting rid of some of the liberal twit law perfessors? Drain the swamp!

    Neil is a bright South Dakota kid. His interest will only be in making the law school what we need it to be here in South Dakota. I don’t think he’ll tolerate slakkards and he will likely be effective in making better hires. This is a good move
    PS I also would suspect that the kid from Miller and Ft Pierre isn’t afraid of a good Hawaiian Party 😎
