The idea of a "favorite judicial opinion" had never occurred to me until the Texas Law Review planted it in my head; the Journal of the American Dental Association could as well have asked me to express some sentiments about my favorite toothache. I was at a loss to think of even a single candidate for what, until the event, I had apparently regarded as a nonexistent office. Why then did I decide to accept the Review's invitation? The answer is, in a word, curiosity: Never mind that the editors of a law review in Texas wanted to know what is my favorite judicial opinion. Suddenly I wanted to know what is my favorite judicial opinion.
