I am pleased to announce that Norman Pattis has joined Crime & Federalism. Norm and I go back about 3 years, and he is someone I admire.
I'll let him formally introduce himself. In the meantime, you can read his first post, "Nutmeg Madness," which is available below. He also writes a weekly column for the Connecticut Law Tribune.
Also note that I am going to fix my blog so that the author of a respective post is indicated in each post.
