Bill Bridge and I go way back—at this writing, forty-two years since we were graduate law students together at Columbia. At twenty-eight, we were both still wet behind the ears. There were only six of us in the program, and we spent a lot of time together. We shared three offices, took most of the same seminars, and lived in the same co-op complex. Then in 1980 I accepted a position on the SMU law faculty and joined Bill, who had come to SMU three years earlier.
