Logic and Games

* How the screenwriter behind My Cousin Vinny got the idea for the movie. [ABA Journal

* One law school reported their graduates' employment rate to be 80.6% when it's actually 32.9%. Surely a typo. Funny how mistakes like this always tend to be in one's favor.

* Jurors in the Tyler Clementi/Dharun Ravi case say that digital evidence convinced them of Ravi's guilt. [NYTimes]

* Gawker headline commits a correlation-causation fallacy in assuming that because poor reading skills and poor health are correlated, that poor reading skills cause poor health. Perhaps a 3rd variable (low income?) is responsible for both. [Gawker]

* Human fossils hint at a new species. [BBC]
