A note on what I meant with my quip on David Jensen.
I have watched and listened to Alan Gura, as he has gained in composure, competence and authority when speaking to the higher courts. I am seeing this same thing with David Jensen.
Public speaking, in any form, is a learned experience. Few have the immediate ease to speak in front of their peers, let alone their supposed superiors.
While I know it is foolhardy to extrapolate the outcome from oral arguments, this one does give some hope.
