The 4th Amendment and JWH

Part of the pleasure of fleshing out this fledgling blawg, in addition to learning HTML, is hunting-and-gathering on the Web for good links and cool resources. One is fourthamendment.com, maintained by John Wesley Hall, Jr., one of the true good guys in the profession, who was made famous once in a Dylan song:

John Wesley Hall
Was a friend to the poor,
He trav'led with a gun in ev'ry hand.
All along this countryside,
He opened a many a door,
But he was never known
To hurt an honest man.

Honestly, Mr. Hall helped me out of a very delicate professional situation once (thank you, NACDL!). Maybe I'll tell you about it some day: think law school hypo involving "the murder weapon," come to life. I'm indebted to him, and he's a true guardian of the Fourth, us p.d.'s, and our clients.
